    Do the French just call it Onion Soup?

    If you get a good version it's great but the cheap canned variety is poor!

    Leek and potato for me, or broccoli and stilton.

    Non! Snert! As does most Dutch food it looks like something you would stay far away from but I'll tell you it tastes delicious!

    Dutch "cuisine" is above all a winter cuisine. The vegetables that grow in the Netherlands are those that are able to overcome a certain level of frost and that do not deteriorate more in case of prolonged rains.


    In the Netherlands, snert made its appearance in the sixteenth century following a very harsh winter. Today, during the particularly cold winters, when the Dutch have the chance to skate on the iced channels, there are huts along the shores where skaters can consume something hot. And, of course, snert is always an option! A hot cup of split pea soup accompanied by a piece of smoked sausage invigorates, strengthens and warms up! Although delicious, we would be hard pressed to say that split pea soup belongs to fine cuisine. Yet the linguists are unanimous. If erwtensoep literally means “pea soup”, the word snert comes from the old Dutch snirten which means “fine cuisine”


    Ingredients
    • 12 oz. split peas
    • 12 oz. smoked pork lardons , cut into cubes
    • 6 slices streaky bacon
    • 3 smoked pork sausages , sliced
    • 6 oz ham hock , diced
    • 1 leek
    • 1 onion
    • ½ lb celery root
    • 2 carrots
    • 6 oz. green beans
    • 10 oz. potatoes , peeled and diced
    • 4 quarts chicken broth
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • Salt
    • Pepper

    A restaurant, because the customer is always right
    It’s true but the onions have to be caramelized which takes at least 45 minutes. It’s takes a lot of patience and focus so they don’t burn.

    Next best soup is a loaded baked potato soup like you’d find at Bennigan’s.

    I’m not a fan of onions but love me some French onion soup. I’ve only ever had it at so-called French restaurants.
    Soup and steak frites, let’s go!!

    Does Ramen count as soup? Goat soup if so.
    Not to take anything away from a cheesy french onion.
    Soup, in general, is great when done right.
    We have a place called Zoup that is one or our favorite places.

    This is their Chicken Pot Pie soup.
