A sumptuous soup of onion-tinged potatoes, loaded with butter, milk and cream, the Potage Darblay is a classic French recipe that everybody will fall in love with as soon as they have the first spoonful.

Although this soup is rich, it has a very comforting and pleasant flavour. You can serve it with bread roll and butter, as a start to the day or the start of a meal.

This traditional potato onion soup tends to thicken after some time, so if you are serving it later, add a little water and adjust the seasoning.

You can also try other wonderful soups like the Lemon Grass and Coconut Soup and Cheese Hot Pot .
