Get my short story, White Soup, FREE!

“White Soup” is a short story set in my Christian Contemporary Romance Sushi series. It takes place after the events in Weddings and Wasabi.

Originally this short story was in the anthology A Recipe for Romance which is now out of print. But now, "White Soup" is available free if you sign up for my newsletter!

What’s up with the white soup?

Originally, I heard about white soup from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (FYI, my Sushi series short story is NOT a Regency romance). Mr. Bingley is talking about the ball he plans to host at Netherfield:

“If you mean Darcy," cried her brother, "he may go to bed, if he chooses, before it begins—but as for the ball, it is quite a settled thing; and as soon as Nicholls has made white soup enough, I shall send round my cards.”

I researched white soup and made it, then blogged about it here. But then I made the recipe again, simplified and a bit more hearty, but definitely not what Bingley served for dinner, and I blogged about the new recipe here.

Check those two links out if you’re interested in either the history of it, or Jane Austen, or eating really delicious soup.

Since my heroine, Jenn, is a great cook, I had her make this decadent soup for a wedding reception, which is what the short story is about. In case you were wondering, the version Jenn makes is the first blog post, not the ghetto-Camy version in the second blog post.
