Soupe au Pistou

For my French class, we have Funday Mondays where we go out into the world and use French with actual Frenchies. This week’s Funday was to a “l’atelier de cuisine” or a studio of food or a place that teaches cooking classes. Pistou is the Provencal term for “pounded” which is basically what we did to a huge handful of basil. Then, we made it into soup. Soupe au Pistou, voila.

We also made these roll up tiny croissant-textured things that is basically pastry dough with onions, pesto, and cheese inside.

I had at least ten. Nothing with butter can taste bad.
