vidalia onion soup

onion soup…dining al fresco was necessary after I turned on the oven to thaw the baguette then toast, then melt the cheese. hot hot hot.

…this is a combo of the southern recipe and the Alton Brown one for onion soup. I had not planned on making it but I just had too many vidalia onions the other day.

…this french cheese was not very melty but it has a little sharp and funky edge which was good to contrast with the very sweet vidalia onions.

…the wine is much too grassy, unripe pear for me (green bottle!!) but you can chill the crap out of it and not feel bad, so good for a hot day. kind of like Peroni! (beer from Italy)

…piquante is the perfect word for peppadew peppers, sweet with just a little heat, no other word describes it quite so well and they really make what would be a very boring salad much more interesting.
