EDM Challenge #111: Draw a Bowl
We had spectacular onion soup at the original Au Pied du Couchon in the old Les Halles area of Paris in November 1970. The soup was delicious and the thick, melted layer of cheese extraordinary. My husband and I perfected Julia Child's recipe from Volume I: Mastering the Art of French Cooking and bought these soup bowls to use for the last minute cheese melting step and serving.
After the Les Halles market moved out of central Paris and Au Pied du Couchon underwent a significant face-lift, the soup was the same, but the ambience of the old place was gone. The marzipan pig was saved from my dessert plate from one of our later visits. Somehow it survived the trip home and is now rock hard from years in the china cabinet.
