So, anyway, we went in search of hearty stuff you eat out of bowls – with a spoon – preferably a large spoon.
We tried Southern Potlikker noodles with mustard greens from the latest Bon Appetit. Although it arguably requires a fork, it is just so warm and comforting.
I can count on one hand the number of people I know who have even tried borscht, but it is not only a great winter soup, it is RED – wakes you up from your winter slumbers and, by the way, it is the lesser color of both teams in next Sunday’s championship game.
The links between Super Bowl and borscht are few – there’s always The Russian Tea Room in — yes — New York, home of the Giants, whose delicious recipe we used. If you are willing to stay out until four in the morning or so, you can watch the game at Bleachers Bar in Moscow (1, Volgogradsky Prospekt; Metro: Proletarskaya, Moscow.)
Martha, Martha, Martha has an easy to follow New England Clam Chowder that is likely to comfort Patriots fans who have to watch the game from somewhere in the vicinity of the Charles River.
