1,065 - Making Soups and Stews

January 2nd, 2015

Episode 183 of 489 episodes

Something smells good! No soup for you unless you listen to this episode. Slow dialog: 1:31 Explanations: 3:20 Fast dialog: 17:54 Charlotte: Mmm, something smells good. Mohamed: Hey, put down that lid! Charlotte: Sorry, I just wanted to see what you’re making. Mohamed: I’m making chicken soup. Charlotte: I’m really in the mood for a hearty stew. There’s nothing more appetizing on a cold day than a good stew. Mohamed: Right, well, this is a simple chicken soup with a clear stock and vegetables. Charlotte: All you would have to do is thicken the soup and let it simmer a little longer. Then, presto! You have a stew. Mohamed: I get it. You’re partial to thick soups, but I feel like making a simple chicken soup. I don’t have time to cook a stew in a slow cooker, which is how I usually make it, not in a pot. Charlotte: All right, all right. Oh, a nice purée or bisque would be nice too. Doesn’t a chowder sound good right now? I could really go for a nice bowl of chowder. Mohamed: Fine, we’ll have chowder for dinner tomorrow. Charlotte: Really? Mohamed: Yes, and it’ll be the best chowder you’ve ever tasted – that comes out of a can. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
