I didn't see a single group on this site that is dedicated to good soups and stews. For those of us who live in climates that inspire good, hot, hearty soups, this is a good place to share your favorites. If you're someone who loves to create spur-of-the-moment soups from the week's leftovers, this site is for you, too!

I had a Thai friend from grad school days come for a visit while she was attending a conference on this side of the oceans. We went to an Asian grocery store and I got to pick her brain about curry pastes, etc. One of our purchases was a container of Aroy-D Tom Kha paste. A dollop of it with water and coconut milk makes a fantastic soup base! We'll have frequent, authentic Tom Kha Gai this winter! Here's a recipe for a faux one I've used before I had the magic paste!
