My Soul is Craving Soup

My Soul is Craving Soup

Everywhere you turn, it's cold weather reports, new year's resolutions, health & fitness challenges, financial re-ealuations, and blue Mondays. A little comfort is needed so it's no wonder January is also known as 'Soup Month'.

Add in a pandemic, loss of in-person social connections, work & school at home, and a full lockdown - and better make that some soul-satisfying soup! 

Without too much oversharing, I'm unearthing every great soup recipe I have these days!  The vegetable chopping has become a kind of meditation for me, and my Overnight Sourdough is on repeat.

Thank goodness for great colleagues who are also great Chefs.  And I am lucky to work with some of the best.  To help all of us, Chef Joyce Singh has shared her wonderful Mulligatawny Soup recipe - so you can warm your soul too.

Be kind to yourself, grab your ingredients, and start chopping!  And if the Sourdough sounds enticing, join us for class in February (more info below). 

Does your Soup Pot need help? We've assembled a collection with prices that won't mess with your January financial goals!

As always, we have curbside pickup, speedy delivery in the GTA and in Montreal, and shipping of every kind imaginable for further out. 

Stay warm,

Alison & the team at Cookery
