Something else I like about French cooking is how each technique builds on the next, so don’t be intimidated by the recipes. 

These are the best French soups to make at home. There are so many soups on this list there’s an excellent option to enjoy anytime, but in general, rich French soups are perfect for cold weather.

Try them for a filling meal for lunch or dinner, or experiment with one of these soups whenever you’re craving something delicious.
