To kick off the new year in a healthy and nourishing way, we featured five fabulous soup recipes in the January/February 2024 magazine by French food blogger Géraldine Leverd that are sure to warm the soul.


A former project manager turned professional blogger, Géraldine Leverd has made quite a name for herself in the online culinary scene. She has been passionate about food since childhood, when she learned to make simple French meals with her mother.

A subsequent move to Germany revealed that the classic dishes she grew up with were not so common abroad – so she stared sharing her recipes and techniques with friends. When the 2020 pandemic made it impossible to continue these cooking experiences in person, Géraldine moved online. Thanks to her delicious, uncomplicated dishes and beautiful photography skills, her blog quickly grew along with her social media following (which now includes more than 470,000 Instagram followers!).


One of the most classic French dishes of all time, French onion soup (or soupe à loignon gratinée) is the most perfect light dish for a cold winter’s day. Made with sautéed onions and decadent French cheese like gruyère or comté, one spoonful will make your tastebuds believe you’re bundled up on the terrasse of a bustling Parisian bistro!

You can find a perfect mini cocotte for the soup available on the MFCH Boutique here. For more of Géraldine’s simple and delicious recipes, check out her blog and her Instagram
