This savory delight is a wonderful pre-dinner treat to "awaken the appetite" that is filling enough to serve as an entree with a big hunk of homemade bread and fresh butter, plus it is easy to make and good for you. This unusual soup is perfect for chilly midwinter days, but is also versatile enough to be served chilled as a refreshing summer treat. I hope you will join me as I make my one of my favorite soups, a Curried Sweet Potato Bisque.
A quick look at the front page of the site shows projects uploaded by woodworkers, knitters, welders, electricians and artists. It is safe to say we are an eclectic group, but we are brought together by a common desire to create and share. Although, we come from diverse backgrounds, I would hazard a guess that many of us first began "making" things in the kitchen. I always love the similarities between the kitchen, studio and workshop. Places where you need to know the basic principles and tools in order to get started, where experience lurks behind every corner waiting to teach a lesson you can't learn any other way, where a little knowledge and perseverance brings great rewards. All of these places are just waiting for that spark to strike, waiting for a little inspiration.
Inspiration comes from many places, but in this case it comes from the ingredients and a little cold weather. To me nothing says comfort food like the smell of fresh baked bread and a big pot of soup slowly simmering on the stove. The legendary Auguste Escoffier
, said "Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite." That is pretty high praise for such a simple dish, but I could not agree more.
