Onion soup came to us from France, where it used to be considered a dish of the poor. But now it can be found in any restaurant where it is served as a gourmet dish. And for good reason, because onion soup has an unsurpassed taste that cannot be compared to anything else.

The recipe for onion soup was shared by a food blogger with the nickname thefoodhub.by_ilona. On Instagram, she explained how to make the soup so that it tastes as good as a fine French restaurant.
