What do you do with six kilos of chopped onions? Why, make soup, of course!
French chef and famous vlogger Alex Gabriel shows us his perfect recipe for French Onion Soup in the latest episode of Alex French Guy Cooking, a YouTube channel devoted to the ultimate French art of cuisine. After learning how to chop onions “street style,” Alex uses the trimmings of his last video to show us his secret to a subtle, immensely flavorful rendition of the Frenchiest of all French foods.
This is a vlog, quite simply, for people who love food. Not in the This-Is-The-Hot-New-Restaurant type way, but in the purest, most satisfying way. What makes Alex so irresistible is his excitement over something as quotidian as a properly chopped onion. With this French Guy Cooking, every recipe is a new adventure, with a myriad exquisite side streets to wander down. No matter how basic the recipe, Alex will never make the same dish twice. Pay close attention to his errant musings and quirky culinary inventions, whether they be an idea for a vegetarian take on the French classic, to a meat grinder powered by an electric drill. Filled with spunk and whimsy, this video and its siblings remind us that cooking, though an intensive labor of love, should and can always be fun.
