Kitchen Parade Extra: Smoked Turkey Chowder ♥

A long-time favorite soup recipe, slow and now localWhen it comes to New Year's, it's a quandary. Some years, champagne and lobster, sure! Others? Well, there's nothing like a bowl of rich and creamy soup, one that cooks a long, long time on the stove, as if in remembrance of all things past.

This week's Kitchen Parade column introduces my local readers to the slow food movement, including St. Louis' own Slow Food chapter. It's at and includes the recipe for Smoked Turkey Chowder.

But whatever your New Year's plans, whether bubbly celebrations or morning-after breakfasts or comfort food on New Year's Day, Kitchen Parade's archives has New Year's recipes for inspiration. And for good luck in the new year, don't forget to cook some black-eyed peas.

See you on the other side! Happy New Year's, all!

SO WHAT IS KITCHEN PARADE, EXACTLY? Kitchen Parade is the food column that my Mom started writing for our family newspaper when I was a baby.
