The Chicken Soup Manifesto
- The third book from Jenn Louis is a collection of chicken soups from around the globe. A pot of chicken soup is the ultimate gesture of love: it heals the sick, nourishes the hungry, warms the chilled and is a culinary staple around the world. It is the world’s most widely interpreted, humble and beloved dish. With chapters divided by continent and recipes listed by country, The Chicken Soup Manifesto illustrates how culture and locality meld to convey a region’s most treasured flavors. Looking at the world through the lens of a simple bowl of chicken soup, Louis shares stories about traditional cooking styles, ingredients, folklore, family history and more— all gathered during years of research, travel and conversations with friends from diverse backgrounds. Chicken soup is a culinary connection shared around the world.
