For those loyal & faithful fans who have been with me since “Soup’s On with Brian”, Soup of the Week will feel familiar, maybe even comfortable. During each episode of Soup’s On, a Soup of the Week would be presented and its history discussed.
For those unfamiliar, new readers this may seem strange, but hear me out: Soup, like any food, runs through the history and culture of the place it originated, picking up pieces of that place and time carrying it along with it. Many soups were born of necessity and are threads that weave themselves into the tapestries of cultural and national identity. Through the Soup of the Week feature, we’ll have the opportunity to explore these histories in an exciting and interesting way.
