This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was thankfully a simple one – and a soup which is always a good thing as the temperatures dip. My crazy busy life (thanks for all your wishes on last weekend’s live baking demos at Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show – everything went really well!) continued this week (eeep – I met Jamie Oliver!) and will do over this weekend but thankfully things will begin to slow down soon. In the meantime, an easy soup was very welcome 😉
This “Celery-Celery” soup is a simple soup which I appreciated used up the bits and pieces of celery in my crisper drawer (does anyone else always have two or three stalks hanging around in their fridge?!) as well as celeriac (which I love) and apples (t’is the season, right?). I forgot that Dorie prefers a thinner soup and added the entire amount of liquid she called for so this one was a bit too thin to be a comforting Autumn soup but would work well as an elegant starter. The earthy celeriac works beautifully with the sweet apples. I might thicken my leftovers up a little with extra celeriac or even a potato or two but next time I would add the liquid with caution and decide after I’ve puréed the soup if I needed to add more. But overall, this recipe is a keeper. A wonderful addition to any Autumn dinner party menu.
