If you attended any significant number of the Hideout's popular Soup and Bread dinners last winter, you probably have a favorite recipe, whether it was farmer Vera Videnovich's chicken and nettle soup, Joshua Westlund's merguez meatballs with chickpeas and kale, or Khawla Shuhayib's marak bamia. Now you can reproduce those and 57 others (including baked items) from the comfort of your own kitchen.
A cookbook companion to the series, created by mistress of soup Martha Bayne and designer Sheila Sachs, is back from the printer and will be available—along with limited edition silkscreen prints of some of the artwork by Paul Dolan—at a release party December 9 at the Hideout, and also at the Hideout's holiday sales on December 15 and 22. It's $20 at the events, and $22 online via PayPal. Profits will benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Soup and Bread II starts up on January 6. E-mail email@example.com if you want to make a crock.
