Last night for Spanish class, I made a Spanish soup called Caldo Gallego - it's a chorizo and kale soup. I followed a recipe from the Dean and Deluca cookbook, the one cookbook in my collection that I don't trust at all - their recipes are vague and filled with mistakes and ambivalent steps with no detail. I find myself whipping out their cookbook pretty often though because it contains some very interesting recipes and traditional dishes from other countries, such as Spain's famous Caldo Gallego.
Anyway, this soup rocks - Here's my version of Caldo Gallego - it's delicious! However, the 4am wide-awake-wake-up call that both Kev and I had from the flavorful chorizo was not so fun!
KEV, by the way, I just found a recipe for ribollita in Dean Deluca.....!!!!!!!!!!! We MUST make it. Maybe with some brandade...this weekend!!!!!!!
