BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST. Becky is back with four more international soup recipes perfect for entertaining because you can make big batches of the soup ahead, then freeze and reheat when guests arrive. To dress them up, each soup has a variety of garnishes that elevate the soup into something gourmet. She will make Creamy Root Vegetable Soup with Homemade Apple Butter and Crispy Parsnip Chips; Smoky Tomato and Fennel Soup with Bleu Cheese Toasts; Thai Peanut and Sweet Potato Soup with Cilantro, Lime and Roasted Red Chile Paste; and Rosemary-kissed Wild Porcini Soup with Herb Oil and Parmesan Reggiano.

Crafting the best vegetarian soups is about how to incorporate herbs, spices and nutrients into your soups so that they are rich with flavors. You’ll enjoy sipping on Sage and Lemon Tea as we get started on making stew-type soups and quick soups for the fast pace of our daily lives. Sureyya shares recipes for Peasant Soup with Root Vegetables; Homemade Spinach Tortellini Soup with Yogurt and Mint; Rice and Lemon Soup with Caramelized Onions and Cilantro; and “Villager’s Sunday Stew,” made with pasta and seasonal vegetables.

In this class we will use warming Indian spices in winter-friendly soups and sandwiches. Archana will mix up a batch of Kapha Masala Powder — a roasted mélange of warming spices for seasoning winter soups and lentils — and use it in Himalayan Parsnip and Apple Soup, where naturally sweet apples combine well with the warm and grounding spice blend. She will also make a delicious Spiced Potato and Vegetable Hot-Pressed Sandwich. Along with Creamy Curried Tomato Soup, Archana also prepares stir-fried Paneer Cheese and Fresh Pepper Pressed Sandwich. For dessert, you will taste a warming Vermicelli Kheer (pudding).
