In this month's (Sept 2011) Food and WIne you will find Hugue Dafour's French-Canadian French Onion Soup recipe. It is unique in that he uses pork (bacon) as the base, not the common beef broth most recipes call for. Has anyone tried it? Curious to know your thoughts.
I tried it over the weekend. It is unlike any French Onion soup I have ever tried. It is delicious. My local Whole Foods did not have a pig's foot so mine did not have richness that the pigs food would have added.
