Soup Recipes

Making soup is the perfect way to extract flavor from ingredients that would have otherwise gone to waste, like bones, vegetables scraps or last night’s leftovers. Among cultures all over the world, soup is universally recognized because it's so simple, comforting and versatile. It evokes a sense a nostalgia, marking the times Mom’s chicken noodle soups cured your cold or trips where you experienced totally foreign flavors. Even chef Eric Ripert connects strong memories to one of his favorites from the South of France (his aunt’s recipe): “At least once a week in the summers we had pistou soup. It’s so hot there.
