Potage Noel

Recommended Posts

Anyone make it with leeks or the "old style one" with truffles? I have an old recipe from a 1963 Christmas book, using the truffles, but think it left out some ingredients...anyone have a recipe? I'm looking for the more onion type potage, not the veggie type...I expect Del most certainly will have one....;)

OK, being always up for a challenge I googled "potage noel".   Turns out that is just "christmas soup" in french.   So looking at the translated versions of several french language sites isn't much help as they have all sorts of suggestions for soup to eat at Christmas.

 

I checked my copy of "mastering the art of french cooking 1 and 2" and nothing.   Gonna need some clues or background or something more to go on.    

 

Have chestnuts in it by any chance?

Nope, has a pic, and says "This creamy onion soup....."  talks about it again as a thick, hearty onion soup, but look at the ingredients...no onions or leeks...? I've wondered about this for many years...they must have left out something. You can see green things (leeks?) floating in it in the pic.. the recipe on the page is:

 

 

5 Tbsp butter

4 Tbsp flour

2 qts seasoned chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 egg yolks

1 canned truffle, thinly sliced

3 Tbsp diced pimento

 

Heat butter and stir in flour; simmer; add broth and continue simmering for 1/2 hour until thick and smooth. Blend heavy cream with egg yolks; then add to soup, stirring constantly,then simmer for 5 mns. Garnish with truffle slices and pimento and serve.

 

Pics of it and the 1963 book it's in...there's three books in that Time-Life set. Fun to read these old volumes.....

I am too. Thanks anyway, Del. It's French anyway, that explains the problem....like the old saying, "The problem with France is that it's full of Frenchman". :lol:

 

Ya ever wanna get rid of any good books, lemme know, My place is overflowing with them. Love the classics.

I would guess that the first section of recipe got cut off somehow.  There isn't a missing page in the book is there?   I could do some guessing, but who knows.

No it didn't. Recipe is smack in the middle of the page, and one paragraph. Nothing cut off. They somehow left out one or two ingredients.....

    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?  
    • What the frequency Kenneth?
