Food Styling for the Soul

What is it about chicken soup?  That magical liquid is the ultimate in comfort food.  As the weather gets colder you just need to fire up the stove and boil down the chicken for some thick and creamy stock.  From that base you can customize endlessly. Chicken soup with barley, mushrooms and greens, or maybe chicken soup with white beans, farro, and escarole... it all sounds good to us! Mariana Velasquez has such a depth of knowledge of ingredients and their combinations - with a simple constraint of 'chicken soup' she was able to really get creative for Fine Cooking and make the most beautiful bowls.  We may already be tired of the holidays but the chilly winter is always better with some soul-warming soup!
