Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Just a touch of sherry at the end of a cream soup can enrich the flavor without adding too much in the way of calories. The sherry used when I cook the wine into the recipe is usually of lesser quality that I keep around the kitchen. When using sherry as a garnish as in this recipe I prefer to use just a touch of my best sherry at the table. Just a teaspoon will do it.
