Cure for the Common Cold

My partner has a bad cold. Poor fella. He’s always washing his hands and following standard procedures of good hygiene to minimize exposure to germs. Nonetheless, he and his mother who was visiting during the holidays both have a cold. I guess they were exposed when they went to the movies.

Sunday afternoon, Guido (our chef) and I spent several hours making our Italian chicken soup — guaranteed to cure everything, including the common cold. Well, I believe that, anyway. Even if a cold isn’t “cured,” the soup sure makes you feel better.

We follow my Nonna’s (grandmother’s) recipe, and Guido posted it on his website, here. Mangi e goda!
