  • ¼ cup cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup leeks, brunoise
  • 1 cup Bermuda onions, brunoise
  • ½ cup Savoy cabbage, brunoise

    To Assemble and Serve:

For Five Onion Soup:
Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom soup pot. Add the Vidalia onions, garlic, leeks and Bermuda onions. Cook until the vegetables are translucent, then add the Savoy cabbage and Shiitake mushrooms. Cook until the cabbage is tender. Add a spice sachet of bay leaf, thyme, and black peppercorn, and the duck stock. Simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the duck confit and spring onions, then bring to a boil and season with salt and black pepper. Remove from the heat.

Ladle the hot soup into warm soup bowls, sprinkle with chive, and serve with the baguette slices.

Wine Pairing:
A light, crisp and acidic white such as an Alsatian Riesling or South African Chenin Blanc.
