Nothing is better than a warm bowl of soup on a chilly fall evening. As a starter, or as a meal, soup is really the perfect dish at any time of year. Chef Christopher Lee demonstrates how to prepare a variety of homemade soups—some familiar, and some incorporating more exotic flavors—all guaranteed to be delicious. The assortment of soups includes: cumin and ginger-spiked butternut squash soup; Thai chicken soup (a flavorful mixture featuring fresh vegetables, a hint of spicy pepper, and creamy coconut milk); rich and hearty cheddar cheese and ale soup; zesty chili con carne (perfect for game day); and, as the perfect accompaniment, aromatic roasted garlic focaccia (Italian flatbread) will also be baked and enjoyed. A new repertoire of soup recipes can be a great part of your weeknight plan, and with the delicious recipes in this class, you will never opt for canned soup again.
