Everything sublime is as difficult as it is rare. Baruch Spinoza

Dinner, a simple cannelloni and escarole soup with big fat croutons. Who wouldn't like that.
I have made a lot of soup this winter, much more than usual. I think the basic and simple quality of it is appealing to me in an organic way. So few ingredients can produce a complexity that cannot be lost on the palette. It reminds me of some of the more interesting people I have known who appear to be simple and ordinary, until you explore a bit deeper and find the amazing, which has been there all along, but you don't realize because one expects so much more. Like soup.
