Food & Wine Pairing: French Onion Soup with District 7 Chardonnay

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups thinly sliced yellow onions
6 cups beef broth
¼ cup District 7 Chardonnay
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 baguette fresh-baked bread
2 slices Swiss or Gruyere cheese
4 slices Provolone cheese
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Melt butter with olive oil in an 8 quart stock pot on medium heat. Add onions and continually stir until tender and translucent. Do not brown the onions. Add beef broth, Chardonnay and thyme; simmer uncovered for 45 minutes. Pre-heat the oven broiler; taste soup and adjust seasonings as needed. Ladle soup into oven-safe serving bowls and place one slice of bread on top of each (bread may be broken into pieces if you prefer). Layer each slice of bread with a slice Provolone, ½ slice Swiss and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Place bowls on rimmed baking sheet and broil in the preheated oven until cheese bubbles and browns slightly. Serve immediately with a crisp green salad and chilled glass of District 7 Chardonnay.
