My chef buddy had a soup swap at his charming stone cottage. Seven soup makers put their 6 quarts of frozen soup in the middle of the table.
Part of the party is “The Telling of the Soup” whereby each soup-maker tells a tall tale or true story of their soup and why anybody would want to choose it. (The first person whose soup is cleared from the table usually gets a prize.)
As you know I made my own creation of “White Bean and Chocolate Chicken Chili”. To tell about it I wore a disguise to make an impression on the other guests.
I don’t know if it was the get-up or the chocolate but I won the prize. My soup was gone first.
And I came home with 2 quarts of roast pork vegetable soup, and 1 quart each of Italian sausage soup, beef stew, friendship soup, and tortellini soup.
Good eating for cold weather.
