I believe I made her and her co-host, Joe Davis, very hungry with the mouth-watering soup recipes from the book.

Aspen Soupsköl Sensation

Aspen’s Annual Wintersköl Celebration has an amazing soup cooking competition amongst restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley to capture “best soup” bragging rights for an entire year.  The contest is called Soupsköl!  The winner is chosen by a people’s choice text vote, making competitors and tasters feel like they have entered American Idol (Imagine: chefs behind their vats of soup exclaiming “Text Number 3!”, while holding up 3 fingers).
