Chicken soup is a classic dish in France and has long been part of the menu in the country.
But a new soup recipe has sparked controversy in the United States, where a video has gone viral of a woman using it to make a French-style chicken soup.
The video was posted to Facebook on Monday, and quickly drew attention to the French dish.
In the video, a woman in her late 30s holds a knife to a bowl of soup, and she uses the soup as a base to create a chicken dish.
She says, “My mother-in-law made it, so it’s my first time making it,” before saying, “I’m going to try it.”
The video has been viewed nearly 3 million times.
In response to the viral video, French President Emmanuel Macron said he has spoken with the woman and will issue an apology.
“I have spoken with her, and I have ordered a review of her work and an apology,” Macron said in a statement.
“This is not an excuse, but an act of self-censorship, a shame and an insult.
This woman’s behavior has been unacceptable and should not be tolerated.”
In a separate video, another woman, who is wearing a red-and-white striped jacket and sunglasses, is seen making a French style chicken soup and using the soup to make French chicken stock.
The French president said in the statement that he had called the woman in question to apologize.
“The French people are proud of their tradition of cooking with a basic ingredient, so I’m glad to see that it is recognized,” Macron wrote.
“And if we want to preserve the tradition of this soup, we will need to change this law, and the law is there.
We will need the support of the French people.”
The American Civil Liberties Union called the video a violation of the First Amendment rights of women.
“When it comes to a soup like this, you can make any type of soup you want, but the fact that the woman makes a soup with chicken stock in it is a clear violation of women’s right to freedom of speech,” said Jodi Cates, the organization’s deputy legal director.
“The fact that she is a chef and not a homemaker, and not even French, suggests that she has no concept of women and that this is a deeply offensive and inappropriate behavior.”
The National Council for Women, a women’s advocacy group, also said the video is “disgraceful.”
“The chef’s actions are deeply offensive to all women,” said spokeswoman Marjorie Coyle.
“She does not represent any women, and her soup is deeply offensive.”
In France, the law does not require that women use a dish as a basis for a soup.
Instead, the recipe for French chicken soup is determined by the cooking method, and it is made by using only chicken stock and the vegetables used in the recipe.
France has strict gender segregation rules, and some chefs use stock made from chicken instead of chicken stock, making it a more expensive, time-consuming and labor intensive process.
France’s law does, however, have a special exception for women.
Under the law, any dish made by a woman is considered to be an “appetite dish,” and a woman must serve it in the same way that men serve meat.
