HINTS AND TIPS:


* You will needcutting board, knife, large stock or soup pot, fine sieve, some muslin cloth (optional), sauté pan, wooden spoon, tray, saucepan, and weight and liquid measures.

* Leftover soup can be used as a stock for many other soups. Or freeze in containers for another day.

* Traditionally, a chicken soup was made as above but using a whole chicken and then the meat from the bird was added back into the soup. The problem with this is the meat has relinquished all of its nutrients into the stock and is too dry.

* Some cooks like to finish the soup with green peas and diced carrot.

* If you want to add some chicken meat to the strained soup, use some chicken breast fillets, thinly sliced and poached for several minutes in the simmering soup.

* A common catchcry throughout this book is that there are as many recipes as there are cooks. And so ... for all the Jewish cooks who cross this recipemy apologies
