In Soup, A Way of Life, Barbara Kafka writes about her grandmother, Dora, who taught her how a pot of soup can be the warmest welcome to give to family and friends.  While nearly every cuisine has a version of chicken soup, with its dill, turnip and carrots, this one will be familiar to most as a traditional Jewish version.  It's perfect for Passover when combined with matzo balls.

Ms. Kafka's book is a celebration of soup as a global food and we benefit from her meticulousness as an author and her exquisite palate as a cook.  For her many fans out there, you'll be happy to know that she is working on a new cookbook.  Few details yet but this is good news.
