After several days of sweltering 80-degree plus heat, a fall chill is finally in the air. Soren, who hates heat and humidity, is ecstatic. I like fall too because it means the return of soup season (and honeycrisp apples). I don’t want to play favorites, but if I had to pick a favorite food, it might be soup. This one, a hearty mix of ham, sausage, beans, potatoes, kale, and tomatoes from the Ovens of Brittany (a cookbook written by the very talented Terese Allen) verges on stew.
I made a batch last Sunday, before curling up on the couch to watch Mad Men.
