On a recent mid-winter trip to Vermont to get some skiing in, my wife and I decided to recharge by enjoying an incredible French onion soup in a nearby restaurant. After a long day of hitting the slopes, it was soul warming and gave us the energy we needed for a few more runs.
I’d like to share the recipe that we use here at Zabar’s, but with a Vermont twist. I've topped the soup with cheddar rather than the usual Swiss cheese. Either way you decide to top this hearty soup, you can’t go wrong.

"Being an actress, a dozen bagels doesn’t really work for me. But I tried all of the fish, and I’ve got to say, it was comparable to the smoked salmon I’d get at the Ritz in Paris." - Chloë Sevigny
"The fish, the bagels and the gorgeous cream cheese with onion chopped through it — oh, it was divine! You know, when you’re not looking I’m Jewish. I’d just call up Zabar’s and tell them to charge it to the Carlyle." - Elaine Stritch
Valentine’s Day is always tricky. Go out for the evening and fight the crowds and cold - and good luck getting a sitter, while trying to squeeze in a few “romantic” moments during the hustle? Or stay in and try to make our everyday routine special?
I almost always vote for staying in and making the most of the time with my loved one. I start by perusing the cheese counter at Zabar’s. I pick out some of our favorites, add a new item or two, throw in some pate from D’Artagnan, a few good olives and of course a Sullivan Street baguette. That is the beginning for a beautiful evening. The last thing I always pick up before leaving is some Valrhona chocolate and strawberries for chocolate fondue. It’s a simple, but impressive, finish for a romantic evening.
