A friend just sent me this wonderful old American cookbook by Miss Leslie – first published in 1854 – and it’s such a wonderful reminder of a simpler time that I’ve spent the past day flipping through the pages.
Among the receipts for transparent puddings, canvasback ducks, oyster pies and fricasseed sweetbreads, I came upon these seasonal soups. Don’t you wish you had a store room?
I’ve also been going through old issues of the Los Angeles Times Food section, and came upon this fascinating recipe we published in the fall of 1991.
it so delicious that we decided to reprint it.
