There’s nothing like walking into a room and getting a whiff of a favorite “comfort food” soup simmering on the stove. The aroma nourishes the spirit even before the soup begins to satisfy the appetite. And who can resist the great variety and versatility of this most fundamental food? As a first course, a clear soup sets the stage for a memorable dinner. Flanked by fresh bread and a crisp salad, a rich cream-based soup or hearty stew makes an entire meal. Chilled soups, piquantly flavored and colorful, make delightful centerpieces for light summer feasts. In the hands of innovative chef Cynthia Finnemore Simonds, soup can even crown the meal as an elegant dessert!
