A friend of mine-hi Jenn!-posted a picture on facebook the other day that made me to a little sleuthing. Her picture was of a hand written poster advertising soup peddling (with a drawing of a bike) in Toronto. Intrigued, I searched on google for soup delivery and found David Ansel’s website. He’s in Austin, TX, not Toronto, but he’d written a book and I love soup (obviously) and I raced out and bought it.
It’s great, really interesting story about an engineer who decided he didn’t enjoy the rat race, dropped out and did the one other thing he was good at to make a living: making soup. I’d be thrilled to have someone deliver soup to my hot little hands weekly.
I am looking forward to trying several of his (easier) recipes, the Chompy-Chomp Black Bean Soup, Bouktouf, Chao Tom, Caldo Verde, Mulligatawny, Ashkenazi Matzoh Ball…it all sounds good to me. Gazpacho? Yes please.
One day I’d like to visit Austin. It sounds like a fun city.
