When things turn Arctic, as they did here this week, I immediately begin thinking “soup.” It’s not the sexiest of foods, it doesn’t photograph well and doesn’t grace many magazine covers. It’s comforting, warming and fills the house with a lingering aroma. Thomas Keller’s butternut squash soup fit the bill over the weekend. But mid-week, while out Christmas shopping or running errands, I’m more likely to duck in somewhere for a bowl of what someone else has cooked.
So – unsexiness be damned – what are the best soups and cold-weather dishes in town?
I’ll be talking about some of my favorites tomorrow at 8:45 am on 102.3 BXR.
