Mike, aren't deer steaks great ?
The following video made me laugh alot ! (oh and that movie !) I seem to be posting videos that make me laugh for some reason. Maybe because there are too many serious things going on in the world and if you can't enjoy what you're doing in the kitchen, what is the point ? ....Even under stress.
I present to you : French Onion Soup (sorry but there are alot of pics)
Prep and cut the bread (baguettes shown)
Ten pounds of onions- yes, I'm still tearing....
Get yourself in some good Swiss
Caramelize those onions
Add water, bay leafs, thyme, garlic , salt and pepper, bring to boil, reduce and cook for one hour . I added two bottles of red wine.
I don't know if anyone else does this but I browned 1/3 cup of flour and added water, added this to the soup.
Two trays of bowls
The liquid gold
The baked croutons
This is a pork pate which was served with maple mustard
Prepped , ready to go
She is ready
You can have red or white wine- it is up to your palate. A simple peasant meal for most, but it was heaven to me.
I eventually drank a 5 year old wine I made . For me, it always brings back memories , precious ones from my childhood, one in particular.
