The residents in the Taylor household never seem to tire of soup, where it is a frequent and welcome choice for lunch and/or dinner. We find that it is the ultimate comfort food, nourishing and rejuvenating us, while at the same time stirring up memories that are sure to make us nostalgic for the more carefree days of our childhood.
Many of our viewers must agree with us about soup, because soup is consistently the Number One search that directs readers to our site. Thank you, search engines, for helping us to more easily spread the word about the joys of wild mushrooming (and, of course, soup!).
If you, too, are a lover of all things soupy, then this month's Incredible Edible recipe is directed to you. For you are sure to find Ken Gordon's (owner and chef at Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen in Portland) rendition of the classic Hungarian mushroom soup to be one of, if not the best, you've ever placed in your treasured soup bowl. Rich? Yes, you might say it's a little over the top, with 1/2 pound of butter and a cup of heavy cream. Yet, the resulting product is balanced and Oh, so satisfying.
Our Harry & David soup bowls have been filled to the brim
with a number of delightful soups over the years, including
Chef Gordon's much-loved Hungarian Mushroom Soup.
