Cooler temperatures here in Pittsburgh make us crave warm, comforting foods. Many of my family’s traditions and gatherings are centered on food. This soup recipe came into my family several years ago when my parents and sister traveled to Austria to visit extended family. There they shared wonderful moments and stories that connected home cooking with family. When they returned, they hosted an Austrian night, making delicious dishes, including this soup, for those of us who couldn’t make the trip. Now, making this recipe every fall connects me with our family traditions and heritage. I love how food and stories connect us so much that I’ve built my career around sharing them. I hope this recipe can connect you to my family story, while keeping you warm on the chilly fall evenings for years to come.
