Another Onion Soup Post

jnk Nov 21, 2008 05:42 AM

About a year ago, there were a number of good looking fos recipes listed, unfortunately, the new board doesn't go back more than a year. Does anyone have what they consider a great recipe? It's getting cold and I'd love to have some this weekend. Many thanks.

    I had always used the recipe from Julia Child's "The French Chef Cookbook" which was very good, but then tried Cook's Illustrated "The Best Recipe" and it is the best onion soup I've had. I noticed that it's a different recipe than the Cook's recipe that is in the "cookography" link from howchow. (the cookography link recipe is a more recent CI recipe, which may be even better).

      Do not know if on earlier post, but the Alton Brown recipe from the food network with cider and wine as well as stock and the bread toasted on only one side was the best l have ever made or had.

          Have you tried changing the date parameters on the search?


          This one goes back two years.
