You moved up from cardinal to bishop, obviously!


I thought that cardinals were higher than bishops and therefore commanded the red attire. What does a silly Methodist girl know? How to serve King crab...and halibut...there ya' go!!

Cardinals are in first place, aren't they?

So I guess they rate higher than bishops.

The best soup I have had is chicken velvet soup. Its so good. Just wish I could find the recipe. The soup is a creamed one. Its thick. It would make a meal.

I've never had soup out that compares to my Mom's Creamy Tomato Bisque. One time she made both the Tomato Bisque and a Southwestern Cheese soup, and I put a half-cup of each in the bowl and kind of swirled them -- WONDERFUL. But I rarely order soup when I'm out, because I'm so often disappointed when it's no better than canned. Although the chicken noodle at Stroud's is tasty.

This is probably heresy on this site, but how about the "Signature Soup" at Safeway "Cravin' Crab & Sweet Corn Chowder."

Just the right amount of crab (with a "C") flavor, the right amount of corn flavor, the right amount of cream flavor, and the right amount of chili flavor. Don't knock it if you have not tried it.

I agree..............and any of those soups that we have tried have been really terrific. I always stock up when they go on sale.

Hmmmm...

Homemade: One of my friends is a culinary double threat-He's from Cutoff, LA (so named because the land cuts off & the water starts), and he's a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute. His whitefish courtboullion & any of his bisques are to die for.

Restaurant: The shrimp chowder from the Cajun Cafe' (which is next to the place I work, and definitely not in Cajun country) is fantastic.

Canned (yeah, yeah): Campbell's Kitchen Classics minestrone. Pretty straightforward stuff...and quite tasty.

I can't believe that no one's mentioned Soup Kitchen International a/k/a the Soup Nazi. This is the place that was satirized in Seinfeld. A few years ago I was in New York for a hot dog run, but had to stop there. I'm not a big soup eater, but this soup was so much better than anything that I've ever tasted. My wife and I split a cup of Lobster Bisque. Thick, tasty, with big pieces of lobster. I almost felt like having another, but had to leave room for hot dogs. Zagats reviewed the Soup Kitchen expecting the soup to be good, but were surprised to find it better than Le Cirque, considered by many to be the best restaurant in New York.

I just read that the owner, Al Yeganeh, will be franchising.

The King's baked onion soup at the Dobbin's House Tavern in Gettysburg, PA. Tons of melted cheese on top! We had the cheaper lunch menu in the cellar...great 18th century atmosphere which complements the Civil War era sites nearby!

Well, I don't want to sound immodest, but I have been told that my homemade Gazpacho is the best. I use my own organically-grown tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers from my garden. Chop the ingredients by hand, blend in some good extra-virgin olive oil, some balsamic vinegar, some sea salt and freshly ground pepper, serve with a good crusty bread, and you've got an ideal summer dinner. Most people finish at least two, and sometimes three bowls of my Gazpacho.

For storebought soup I like most of Trader Joe's stuff in a carton. their cream of tomato is particularly good.


For road food it is hard to beat an oyster pan roast at the Grand Central Oyster Bar

French onion soup for me,

In Springfield MA, I used to go to Tilly's.

In Paris, I go to Pied de Cochon and have a half dozen oysters as well, nice after-clubbing snack and I don't have to eat at all the next day.

Otherwise, Campbell's Cream of Mushrooom Soup is the absolute best ever soup ever invented!! just sprinkle a tiny bit of espelette pepper on it for fun.

I agree with Emily. French Onion Soup is my favorite.
Also, I am never without Campbells Cream of Mushroom soup. I use it inalot of my casseroles and on my roasts.

I like your name "Emily" is my daughter's name.

OK, I finally narrowed it down as much as I could - French onion soup from La Bonne Soupe in Manhattan, Lobster Bisque at the Drake Hotel in Chicago and the Mushroom bouillon at a restaurant that burned down in PA.

Of the soups I make at home (at least 20 varieties), my favorites are ham and bean made with marrow beans and beer in the broth and roasted garlic- parmesan.

Pho anyplace.

For years I drove by Pho Bac (sorry, I don't know how to put the little thingy's over the vowels) in Seattle wondering what was going on in there from abou 8am until midnight ... I read an article about pho, which tanslates to "your own bowl" ... I tried it and became literally addicted.

Pho Bac is number one.

Cambridge/Boston has some good places, DC has some good places ... I'd be curious if anyone ever finds a bad pho place.

Anyone know how to make it. I'm told the most rustic recipies are just herbs and veggies.

I had my "World's Best Soup" at the Saxonburg Hotel in Saxonburg, PA, just north of Piottsburgh. They had the best Lobster Bisque I had ever eaten. I'd love to go back to that area.

Yesterday, we had baked potato soup. Tonight , we are having cowboy stew. We bought some of the bases for the soup at the Southern Womens Show from a place called Companys Comin. These are really good soups.
I also have a Chicken Enchilada mix and a Pico de Gallo mix to use yet. You can order these from their website and there is no shipping charges if you buy at least 20.00

French onion soup, if it's done just right, has got to be my favorite. That may be because my 11-year-old isn't crazy about it, so I only get it now and again......

About 20 years ago, a friend of mine from Chicago opened up a place in Lake Forest, CA. She served pizza, Vienna Beef dogs, Gyros and Italian Beefs. She used to give me the au jus whenever she'd do up the roasts for her Italian beefs. To me, the substance was more precious than gold. I would take it home and, with the free onions I got from the onion broker two doors down, I'd make the best French Onion Soup on the planet. I made it in the traditional style with sherry added. It by far is the best soup I have ever tasted.

I am ashamed to say I have forgotten the name of the little restaurant, but it was near Biddeford, ME. Just north. My brother and I went in mid September and they had very few customers. I made the comment to the waitress that I bet that steamer clams would make one heck of a good stew. She said, "Give me an hour or so and I can make you some".
We sat and drank beer and chatted an hour and she brought us a chowder that I would willingly drive all the way back for. Thick cream base, chunks of potatoes, and chock full of fresh steamer clams!!! My brother and I each ate two bowls and she put the rest of it in styrofoam containers to take with us. I think she charged us $5 a bowl and $10 for the remainder to take with us. Such a nice lady. She came and sat with us and chatted after we had finished our meal.
Gotta love those Mainers.

The seafood chowder in any small pub in County Galway is unbeatable.
Stew Leonard's crab bisque is great also.
As far as canned go, I'd have to go old standby - Campbells alphabet soup.
