“My husband brought this recipe back from New York several years ago. He had the honor of working at the home of Annemarie Huste, Personal Chef to Billy Rose and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She served him this soup one afternoon and graciously gave him the recipe for his new wife. I have been making it ever since. The whole family looks forward to "soup night" when this one is on the menu.”
