“"To make this comforting soup a carefree dinner and deepen its rich flavors, we started on the stove and ended in the crock-pot. We have fused the best of two cuisines, French and Thai, into one fantastic soup!" I saw this on a Taste of Thai newsletter and it sounded very interesting - it would be too spicy for the resident's here at the home, so I decided to post here for safekeeping.”
