“We live from ‘good soup’” (Levinas, Totality and Infinity, 1961:110). This blog tracks 'good soup' back to its source. Using recipes from my catering and cooking classes, the restaurants I've worked in and the cookbooks I read, I’ll introduce you to the lives behind good soup: cooks that understand, farmers that care, soil that nurtures and animals that die, all for good soup. Recipes are just the beginning. Good soup sings with lives worth reading about.
