French Onion Soup from 1651
French Onion Soup from 1651
A theory says that it was Stanislas Leszczynski, Duke of Lorraine and father of the Queen of France, who tasted the onion soup in a Champagne inn. He thought it was not only delicious but also filling. He then decided to learn to prepare a similar soup. He went on to popularize the recipe at the Palace of Versailles.
