Soup Please, it’s fall season.
This story is about another BBQ with family and friends. It was september, we had planed to say goodbye to summer and enjoy one last BBQ before movies and “cocooning" season knocked on our doors.
October is full of surprises when it comes about weather, every year brings a different pattern to it, it’s either rainy or sunny with a blue sky, like summer doesn't really want to leave. Not complaining but I guess it may have something to do with #globalwarming.
Autumn is my favorite season. Weather is nice, it’s a little colder, trees show their prettiest colors and cheesy family activities like picking apples are the most important reasons I love those months. We cuddle, we breath cold fresh air, we cook comfort food with marvelous products the land gives us, products like leeks.
Local leek for local cold
Leek is not a vegetable that I ate on many occasions. At home, my mom would do the vichyssoise 2 or 3 times a year and that was the only time I ate leek as a kid. I believe my mom was not a fan of it. Frankly, I always thought that kind of soup was missing something, a little punch, some sort of side kick at the end.
Going back to my BBQ story of the beginning, it was a saturday of october and it was cold. To the point we were doubting about grilling our meat and veggies, eating outside was not less of an option. The vichyssoise was haunting my social media feed and because cold weather calls for soup, this was my perfect excuse to try to give it that punch I was talking about. I took a couple of minutes to realize it would go well with chorizo, a really tasty cheese and maybe my croutons, creating a soup that goes from “meh” to “ohhh damn! I want more” :)
