Imagine my surprise when I discovered this little known sonnet written by William Shakespeare in 1612 – can you believe it?? I simply had to make the soup!!
From what pot doth yonder soup come? Alas, my heart is a twitter with love for you, Soupwench.*Thou doth take many splendid traditional ingredients such as chipotle chile, cumin, and freshly squeezed lime juice, and thou doth add coconut milk. Soupwench, what hath thou donest to me-ist? My lonely heart shall ache for many fortnights till you give me this recipe. Or at least make me this luscious stew. Hark!
*Editor’s note: Soupwench is my great, great, great grandmother.
