These are very practical helpful tips from celebrity chef, Bobby Flays... "It was quintessential Flay: to the point and, yes, a little blunt. But it was the kind of advice that home cooks could not only act on immediately, but also remember. While his advice may sound simple and obvious, you’d be surprised how few chefs are able to clearly explain what they do."
I am looking forward to making this earthy soup on cold days. This recipe is adaptable and versatile. For a 100% vegetarian version, simply use a vegetable stock or plain water in place of chicken stock. Once the basic technique is mastered, the possibilities are endless.
