Parma ham and Parmesan cheese soup

Parma ham and  parmesan soup

My 96 years old grandma is very sick, and at this age we don’t have great hopes

about her recuperation, so, I can’t see myself writing about food or even taken pictures in the next days. I know that you understand my mood. Meanwhile I let you this recipe that I made a couple of days ago for dinner I hope you enjoy it.

Parma ham and parmesan cheese soup


  • 8 cups water
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 3 medium white onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1-1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parma ham cute in dices

Heat the water to boiling in a large pan. Add the wine.

Cut the onions into thin slices, and then quarter the slices. Add to the water and wine.

Add salt & pepper.

Bring the mixture back to boiling, then turn the heat down and simmer, uncovered. While stirring briskly, sift the flour into the soup. Continue to stir if any large lumps of flour develop. Be careful when you stir; a whisk will help. As the soup continues to cook, any lumps should dissolve.

After 30 minutes of additional simmering, add the cream and 1 cup parmesan cheese.

Continue to simmer the soup for 5 to 10 minutes

Sprinkle with remaining parmesan and Parma ham, Serve
