Simply, good

The French cuisine can be terribly complex, it’s part of its charm, but it also embraces a simple, fundamental food: soup.  Soups of all types are popular in France, from bisques and bouillabaisses to creams and vichyssoises, most of which have humble beginnings.
We made pumpkin or potiron soup this weekend from the garden.  It contained two ingredients: potiron and milk, nothing more.  This velouté is all what a soup needs to be: simple good can be and good does not need to be complicated.
