Filet boeuf and garlic velouté soup

This dish is from Aquitaine: Bordeaux.

It’s a traditional garlic velouté soup that the French tend to enjoy after a night of drinking, similar to French onion soup.

I also cooked this beef filet with red wine sauce, sautéed mushrooms and potatoes.

Here’s another angle for texture and height perspective:

These are the first dishes I’ve cooked all semester that I truly enjoyed and felt proud of cooking!
