Saint Germain Soup

It is a classics of the French cuisine that has its roots in the suburbs of Saint Germaint en Laye and the Count de Saint Germain. For centuries, Saint-Germain-en-Laye was a vast area covered with forests, vegetable gardens and a castle. Then, in the 17th century, they were massively populated by Parisians who wanted to escape the shackles of the big city. Arable land began to decline very much. Many nobles built large houses. This was also due to the disappearance of the great gardeners in the 18th century. The suburb thus became a very popular place for noble residences, but continues to be the site of a large market and a fair of fruits and vegetables, pigs and game – the first and largest Paris. This explains the basics of Saint Germain soup, peas and lard. The colonization of Algeria in 1830 and the cultivation of peas throughout the year in this country have brought peas during the whole year.
I saw the recipe for this interesting soup in the book “The Culinary Encyclopedia” by Trud Publishing House, which is an endless source of culinary information and recipes.

Try to make this soup and see how amazing its taste is, despite its limited number and simple ingredients. It is also very suitable for people who follow a low carbohydrate diet.

Enjoy! 🙂
