Even though Sean (my husband) is an amazing high school biology teacher, his big passion is cooking. He has received his culinary training from the world renowned Food Network Culinary Institute ;) The Food Network is the most watched network in our home, well perhaps next to Treehouse. I am certain he knows as much as any chef but he doesn't have much time to put theory into practice. So whenever he gets a weekend afternoon free from marking biology labs, he loves to cook. One of his big joys recently has been soups. I must admit, his soups are GOOD. I think his favourite part of the process is chopping. This is what a typical soups starts with.
