Week 3 Fundamentals

This was SOUP week!



We made French Onion, Split Pea Soup, Mushroom Soup, Chicken Consomme and Minestrone.





I loved making the split pea and french onion...ok I liked the mushroom soup too...!


Chef thought all of our soups were good except some needed more SALT...and I can't stand a lot of salt...lol.



The french onion soup was such a hit for me that I took the recipe home and as you might have seen in my earlier post.


Tomorrow night I'm making grilled sirloin and portabello mushroom soup...mmmmmm


To make the pea soup you needed to sweat the vegetables (onion, garlic, celery, leek -green, etc...) and fry the bacon in the grease. Then add the ham hock and chicken stock. After all of this you add the peas and let it simmer. After the peas are soft you are ready to serve...you need to make sure you make the croutons though...WOW...we made croutons in class and they were awesome! Take some bread and cut into small cubes...then toast them in clarified butter in a skillet...they will blow your mind.


Included in this post you will see some pics from week 3 of our Consomme, Pea Soup, Mushroom soup and OHHHHHH...I almost forgot our chicken pot pie...I mean Chicken Water Zoi....lol...I will post the recipe for this tomorrow...
