Author Notes

When everyone around you is on a juice detox after too many champs toasting in the new year, they're bound to get hungry. Make this warm, hearty soup for them. Poor things have just been drinking cold juice. Now you, go ahead and pour yourself a glass of Pinot Gris rose wine to devour this with. And bread. Never forget the bread! A nice baguette is a must. —Lauren A.
