Le Tourin is a type of garlic soup. This recipe is from the village of Le Fleix in Dordogne.


Serves 2


  1. In a frying pan, brown the chopped garlic (or optionally, an equal mixture of chopped onions and garlic) in the olive oil.
  2. Add the flour.
  3. Mix well, then cook for a moment.
  4. Add some boiling salted water, and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. In a separate dish, mix:
    • egg yolk
    • pepper
    • vinegar
  6. Add the egg white to the soup, first tempering in a separate bowl with a whisk, so that no large pieces of egg white form.
  7. Cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the egg yolk mixture, again tempering to avoid coagulation.
  8. Place thin slices of bread in each soup bowl, and pour the soup on top. Serve hot. Bon appétit.
