For my last post, I presented a recipe for “French Peasant Bread” and mentioned how wonderful this bread was to accompany soup. I teased you with an upcoming potato soup and decided to continue my peasant theme.

I adapted this recipe from A Table in Tuscany by Leslie Forbes. I bought this cookbook on the bargain rack at a local bookstore MANY years ago. I think I actually bought two and gave one to my best friend as a gift. (We both dream about traveling and/or living in Tuscany one day!)

I’m dreaming of a white chili…..Just like the ones I used to know.
Every once in a while, our local paper will publish cherished recipes from long ago closed restaurants. St. Michael’s Alley white chili must have been a much loved favorite because it is featured quite often. I made this same recipe about five . . . → Read More: I’m dreaming of a white chili.
