When you think of soup, your first image may be the cozy meals of winter and fall. Merrill and Amanda of Food52 would urge you to reconsider. “We’re year-round soup devotees,” they wrote in their letter for #F5208 (which shipped during the springtime asparagus season). Here’s what they included in their box of soup essentials:
That gorgeous wooden object at center is a hand-carved spoon rest from Allegheny Treenware——perfect for resting that enamel cooking and serving soon without turning the stove into a soupy mess.
Next up was flavor. That unassuming little jar contains Sel d’Antibes, a blend of grey salt, bergamot, and herbs dreamed up by none other than Le Bernardin’s Eric Ripert and Lior Lev Sercarz of La Boîte. Merrill and Amanda particularly recommend it for fish stew. Adding pouches of your own herbs and spices finally becomes easy with those herb sachets and soup socks.
