If there's a month that's tailor-made for soup, it's January. There's nothing quite like coming home to a steaming pot of homemade soup. The aroma alone awakens beautiful memories of warming up by a fire with a mug of soup, good bread, and great conversation. Good soup shared with friends warms the body and the soul.
Homemade Chicken Stock - At the heart of every good soup is a terrific stock. You'll be able to use this delicious stock in every soup we make in the class. Susan the Stock Whisperer makes it religiously, and can tell you all the secrets of the stock pot!
Italian Wedding Soup - Don't wait for a wedding for this tradtional Italian soup featuring tiny meatballs and some lovely deep green spinach. Pretty yet profoundly delicious.
Winter Squash Bisque - a medley of winter squashes slowly simmered and spiced then pureed. We'll finish it with a plum balsamic reduction and toasted pepitas.
Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup - That earthy taste of wild rice makes for some great texture in this soup, perfect for a cold weekend up north. It'll be finished with sherry and served with a delightful focaccia.
Crispy Pear Cobbler - This homey yet decadent dessert sits atop a toffee crumble crust (oh, my!) and wil be enjoyed with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
