"An old-fashioned vegetable soup, without any enhancement, is a more powerful anti-carcinogen than any known medicine."
-James Duke, MD, U.S. Department of Agriculture

The refrigerator light goes on...

Another very simple and lovely soup that is so good for you. With a nice hunk of sourdough bread and an ounce of goat cheese you have the perfect meal.

Wine Choices

Cooking with the best quality ingredients results in the best quality dish. This is so important with your choice of wine. For white wines choose a chardonnay in recipes that are rich or savory and a dry sauvignon blanc for tart or acidic recipes.

Full bodied reds like cabernet are the choice for a stews or rich sauces. When I am making a dish that requires a little more finesse I might choose a young pinot noir.
