Or, as Dorie says on page 58 of Around my French Table about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, “Enfin! It’s spring!”. A delicate, simple soup with just asparagus, onion, leek, shallots and garlic (although I actually used vegetable stock instead of water and added a touch of thyme too), it begs to be served in small portions – as Dorie says, serving in “smaller-than-usual-proportions [...] adds to the soup’s sophistication.” So, I served it in shot glasses. Kind of like a “cheers to spring” – now it’s finally here!
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
