From mid-September through late November, large bright-yellow chrysanthemums bloom throughout most of Japan. They’re an impressive sight inspiring all sorts of poetic images: Autumnal Sentiment Soup is my personal interpretation of nature’s glory. This delicate soup could herald the start of a dinner featuring a simple roasted-meat or grilled-fish entrée.
