This soup originates from the North of France. Cook's Notes: Adding garlic to hot oil gives a burnt taste on the palate. Adding salt to cooked vegetables causes them to sweat and have no color. Celery leaves break down in the soup and give off an amazing aroma. Tip: Build soup in layers in no particular order. Chef recommends adding vegetables in the following sequence: celery, carrots, turnips, potatoes and finally cabbage. Beans were added to this recipe, but not shown in the video.
