The first time I heard about Lohikeitto I was at home watching the Food network. It was a special episode about the traditional food and cuisine of Finland. As soon as I heard about Lohikeitto, this amazing salmon soup I decided I wanted to make my own recipe with a homemade lobster fumet. Jean-Félix was not super excited about the idea so I waited until I had a guest over to try it. It was amazing … and believe me or not, it became one of Jean-Félix’s favourites. He always asks for Lohikeitto now. HA-HA-HA It’s so comforting. This soup makes you feel warm and happy. In Finland they will serve the Lohikeitto with rye bread but I much more prefer with a big loaf of bread.
The Italian wedding soup arrived in my life about 15 years ago. My uncle had a sandwich shop in Quebec City and he used to serve this soup as an appetizer. It was not a homemade soup (Shame on him … it is so easy to make HA-HA-HA) but it didn’t matter, I was in love with the flavours, the simplicity and the lovely little pasta (that were always overcooked … lol). So, as we all know that everything homemade is always the best, I decided to make my own.
I am a huge huge fan of soups! I mean, all kinds of soups. The only problem I have is called Jean-Félix! He is not! HA-HA-HA! Or maybe should I say, he was not. After several years spending together and after many, many, many soups, I think I succeed in making him enjoy most of them. It’s a big victory! LOL I’m still crossing my fingers about mushrooms. Yes … you read well… He hates mushrooms. I love to say that it is its only big default. But about all the rest, he is almost perfect! Says the girl who’s totally in love! HA-HA-HA
