I have quite a thing for soup. Especially when it's rainy and cold outside.
I've also developed quite a thing for Williams Sonoma of late too. I've been going to their free Sunday Technique Classes with friends as often as I can to learn a few new techniques and shhh (don't tell hubby), shop for lots of new gadgets too. Did I mention that these classes are FREE, and here's a tip, don't eat before you go, because you get to try the dishes they cook and they are always delicious. Oh and after attending the class, you get 10% off (including sale items) in-store.
While I was at a technique class last weekend I picked up a recipe card for Spiced Carrot Soup. It sounded delicious, so I made it during the week for dinner and paired it with warm sourdough rolls.
It was delicious!
If you do have a Williams Sonoma nearby, I highly recommend their technique classes, it's a great way to learn a few tips, taste and then take home some fabulous recipes and it makes for a great morning out with girlfriends.
