Authentic French Onion - urban tale or does it exist?

itryalot | Feb 13, 2009 05:51 PM

Wanted an authentic French onion (soupe a l'ognion gratinee) but have been displeased. I have the Balthazar cookbook and although I adore every recipe I have tried, the onion soup looks different. It uses chicken stock.
Also, it only uses one kind of onion.

I was going to make a good beef broth this weekend, but maybe will wait.
I was not overly thrilled with Epicurious's recipe either.

Is there such a thing as an authentic French Onion Soup recipe or is Balthazar's it?
