  • About

Redolent of the smoky tones of duck and fresh shiitake mushrooms, this is a rather splendid soup, fit for impressing someone special if not only yourself. Haul out the Queen Victoria china and toast with a fine red wine—none of which is traditional, but neither is this soup.

The preparations may be done a day in advance. Then you can heat it up in minutes and eat it like a queen.
