You don’t need the new year to make resolutions and because of that, I’m making one right now. By the end of June next year, I’d very much like to finally be fluent in French (or at least spoken French). And by fluent, I mean not needing to translate English into French in my mind before speaking it, understanding the individual words French people are saying the moment I hear it and being able to discuss things in French. And since my French classes don’t begin till a couple of weeks from now, I guess what better way to kick off the blog’s French Friday series than with food?
Monsieur Ratatouille and I spent a Saturday afternoon making our very own cauliflower and potato soup with roasted mushrooms – all from raw ingredients, and no stock included. Yes, I’m actually very proud of myself because I managed to also get potato cubes and roasted mushrooms in this otherwise mashed up dish.
We got the inspiration from this recipe on Marmiton, which was just to make a simple soupe gourmande au chou-fleur. In the original recipe, they used lardon but we switched that with sliced ham instead, since we didn’t have lardon lying around like how people do in France.
