French Onion Soup Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons of Kisan canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 8 cups of finely sliced onions
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 cartons of beef broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 24 slices of French bread baguette
  • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled and halved well
  • 3/4 cup frayed Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Cooking Directions

Using a Dutch oven, heat two tablespoons of Kisan oil and butter over a medium flame.  Add the finely sliced onions; cook and stir until they are softened, for about 10-15 minutes only. Reduce the heat to medium-low; cook, stirring periodically until they achieve a deep golden brown shade after 30-40 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for another two minutes, turning it from time to time.

Bring the entire mixture to a boil; cook until it simmers and the half of the liquid is left back. Now, carefully add the broth, black pepper and salt and let all of it boil well.  Reduce the heat, decreasing the flame. Simmer, keeping it covered, stirring occasionally, for almost one hour.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. Now, put the baguette slices on a baking sheet; brush both sides with remaining oil. Bake until toasted, 3-5 minutes on each side till it is golden.

To serve, place twelve broiler-safe bowls or ramekins on the baking sheets. Place two toasts in each one of them. Ladle them with soup, and add a cheesy topping.  Keep broiling till the cheese melts well and enjoy the sweet onion soup!

The French Vanity Fair: Sugar and Spice and a Une Pincée de Français

The land of Coco Chanel. France. For hundreds of centuries, the quixotic fluttering of the wings of Time has enriched the elegance of Paris and anything that is pompously French! During my ubiquitous visits to France, I often noticed the witchcraft beauty of the Parisian women and indeed, the aura and the charisma of being très français simply honors you with the honor of having the best of both the worlds.

French Vanity Fair

Striving with the practice of the most chivalrous culinary arts at La Cordon Bleu, I would spend the day heartily in vanilla-scented kitchenettes, juggling with different astounding recipes whilst the pitch-black twilights would be spent more somberly, rambling the grainy, cobblestoned streets or merely sitting in the dimly knit bistros, soused and trickled with the sweet overtures of ethereal music française.

Striving with the practice of the most chivalrous culinary arts at La Cordon Bleu

The rhapsodic blend of flamenco-like tunes would veil the crumbling nightfall in an aura of enchanting mystery and whilst everyone chatted the cares of a long day away merrily, I would notice how very bewitchingly clad would the French dames would be, looking completely divine!

Be in be any part of the world, the French, especially the Parisian girls can be recognized anywhere, carving a majestic niche of their own eminent classiness.

Having the most delightfully petit figure, the French élan would be totally out of the world, whisking you off your feet, as you would see their beauties dipped in patrician hues.

The most striking thing about a French girl would be the way she would sit at the prettiest place in Paris to eat a spring breakfast, such as a quaint corner at Le Meurice overseeing the Tuileries. Also, the section of the quay, right near the Pont d’Alma is one of the serenest corners of Paris.

She would drink crimson colored wine and smirk softly, as her dainty fingers would portion the tender breasted duck, with a little sway of vintage inspired cutlery magnificently. The paradoxical French food would be cooked to perfection, capped with a fine slice of Brie de Meaux.

Ever since the beginning of the world, Paris is the holistic mecca, and swarmed with ravishing arts conjured by the multiethnic mavens, flocking from every part of the world to the idyllic corners of Parisian lanes and boulevards like a spell would come to life! Indeed, the exquisite charm of France has puzzled the travelers for centuries, especially when it comes to gawk overwhelmingly at the sylphlike forms of the French women.


Charming, well-poised, draped thickly, cloaked in mystique hues, the Parisian girl can alluringly bemuse you with the way she toys with an umpteen delicacy.

The way she would dress adopting the gorgeous designer apparel, swank around a dreamy shabby chic cottage, brag the posh Hermes silk scarves and the lavish Louis Vuitton bags and its killer collection of stiletto shoes, irresistibly wear the trademark Parisian smoky eyes, tuck goodies in her little basket chicly, buy the most pristinely designed evening gowns, carry Tiffany rings like no one else could, make the most delectable sundried tomato baguette, enjoy the evergreen Laudree macarons on feisty bridal showers, drench herself in timeless Parisian fragrances and boast extravagancy with a hint of aristocratic air about her.

The lunch is mostly based on the herbal infusion of a savory omelet while the dinner time is all about digging into the delicious layers of a well-cooked lasagna, steak frites or any other luxuriant dish while sometimes, it might be just plain yet invigorating bowl of sweet onion soup.

The Parisian snacks are usually the simplest, based on small tea cookies and a mug of steaming black tea.

And yes, the brewing magic of pain au chocolate, Chocolat Chaud to gaufres au chocolat is totally undeniable!

Well, I hope, being one of the dreamiest girls ever, I could just imitate the paradoxical French diet and the luxuriant lifestyle and learn to live in fine fettle, just the way any Parisian would do!

Let’s have a brief look at some of the most commonly loved French foods enjoyed by the French ladies!

The French tend to create recipes with their own ingredients, and cooking of any ethnicity is easy these days, as you can always input ingredients and get recipes of any type, and I often visit French food blogs or famous food websites written notably by the veteran French chefs.

My food is often cooked by me and mostly, it is French, as I channel my inner Julia Child; here are some of my favourite French recipes that I try almost daily.
