For The Kitchen

While 2020 was a year like no other, I used my time productively in the first months of quarantine, transforming my favorite dishes into soup versions of themselves and ultimately, researching, writing, styling and shooting the experience for my cookbook, SOUPified: Soups Inspired by Your Favorite Dishes, a whimsical and fun collection of soup recipes that were inspired by favorites like Eggplant Parm, Chicken Marsala, Lasagne, Shrimp Scampi, Philly Cheesesteak, Clams Casino, Chinese Egg Roll and more.

The thirty-one recipes featured on these pages – one for every day of the month – include classic dishes that have been transformed into spoonable, bowl form, while still holding true to their core soul and spirit. The recipes are comfort food at its finest—hearty compilations of flavor, color, and texture, many of which are meals in and of themselves. Portions are generous; each recipe is scaled to feed either 4 to 6 or 6 to 8 hungry diners, yielding multiple meals in some instances, or freezer stashes for the future.

SOUPified is available in 3 different versions:  ebook, paperback and hardcover. You can find the book here.
