Lucky for me this weeks pick for FFWD is 'Paris Mushroom soup'. It is a cold day in NJ (19 degrees) and we're expecting snow tonight. I really needed some comfort food for dinner. This soup was just what I was hoping for. It is fairly easy to put together and is very warm and inviting. I happen to love mushroom soup anyway! This was not the case with my husband. He reluctantly ate his bowl, but said it was not one of his favorite dishes. I think I will have another bowl tomorrow and freeze the rest to take out to my daughter's house. The taste was truly wonderful, the flavor of the wine and herbs were so evident with every bite. Too bad I wasn't eating this in a Paris Cafe with the back drop being the Eiffel Tower! I would definitely make this again, just not for my husband.
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspans new book 'Around My French Table'. And also here!
