Did you know that 1 in 4 people in San Francisco suffer from food insecurity? Thankfully there are wonderful organizations in SF like Glide Memorial Church. Glide serves 3 meals a day, 364 days a year. But they need volunteers in order to serve all those in need.
The past few years, I've really gotten into soups. I tend to run cold, and soups really warm me up and make me feel good on a cold day. I learned how to make one of my favorites - Hot & Sour Soup - from my dad "Chef Kenny." I learned from one of the best - he owned two Chinese restaurants, has taught Chinese cooking classes, and published a Chinese cookbook. This is my adaptation of his recipe.
For my first EAT post, I wanted to share a recipe - actually 2! Since I cook at least 4 to 5 times a week, I am always looking for new things to make so my partner and I don't get bored. A fun challenge for me is to figure out tasty foods to cook that are easy to make on a weeknight. This chili recipe is one of my favorites to make, especially during the cooler winter months.
