Did you know that this classic soup in its original form dates back to the roman times?! the classic soup experienced a renaissance of sorts thanks to french cuisine. The trick here is to chop the onions really fine. Cheese thickens the broth while mustard imparts a heady, pungent flavour. French onion soup is always served by pouring ladles of soup over a cheese crouton placed in a bowl. This soup is delectable and worth trying. Enjoy!
