It's time for soup...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Although the last few days here in Northern California have been rather warm, there still has been a few hints of the approching cool weather of fall. So I thought it would be a good time to post a bunch of French soup recipes on my web site. There's 22 to choose from — all tested and illustrated.

COOOOOOOOOOL!

What a fun page!!!!!!!!!! It's really beautiful Bouland. And your pics are fantastic. You've really outdone yourself this time!

I especially like the tourain à l'ail. It reminds me of a soup I had (and now make) in the Basque country. Garlic cloves, fried on oil until golden, chicken stock, aromates, poached eggs and bread. Though I never tested the theory, I'm convinced it's a cure for hangovers... (Hmm... must put that on my to-do list ;))

Anneke is right!
Bouland how much time do you spend with your site on a daily basis?
Excellent job! Congrats!!

It's a labor of love so I don't keep track of the time it takes. Even though I tested almost 30 recipes to choose the 22 in the article, I had to cook dinner anyway so there isn't that much extra time required. I have to take the pictures fast so the food doesn't get cold! My wife was getting a bit tired of soup every night, especially since I wrote the article in late-June, early-July as summer was in full swing.

It usually takes a day or two to program the web pages since I'm always trying to push the code to do a little bit more than seen on other sites. When I no longer have to make pages work on Netscape version 4, the programming time will get faster. About 5% of my visitors are still using that old, buggy browser with non-standard code.

Wow, still lot of work and it seems that professional skills on programming are required!

I have been told by a number of web professionals that I write code with greater functionality than they can write. but, it's just a matter of experience — like cooking.

I visited your site a number of times and must say I am impressed with your work. I especially like that part where you can click on a bowl of soup and it'll come up with a recipe. Thanks for sharing!:cool:
