Winter soups from Southern Italy
What better way to enjoy a cold winter day than with a hearty soup? Join me and learn how to make a tasty chicken broth that we will use in our first soup, chicken broth flavored with tiny meatballs made out of fresh homemade ricotta. We will follow with a creamy chick pea soup flavored with shrimp broth. The next two soups are full of flavor and truly highlight the simplicity of soups made in Southern Italy using only vegetables and water. A velvety cauliflower soup and a stew of cannellini beans and celery, my husband’s favorite soup from Sicily. We'll finish it off with a wonderful dessert, poached pears stuffed with a sweet ricotta cream.
