I prefer to garnish this soup with anchovy mayonnaise, but pesto and remoulade also work well.

Wine pairings:

The best option is Sherry, the classic soup accompaniment, be it bone-dry fino or richer Amontillado. You could also get by nicely with a dry, neutral Mediterranean white, such as Italian Soave or Spanish Rueda.– Beppi Crosariol


6 cups chicken stock

1 cup carrot, 1/4-inch dice

1 cup Jerusalem artichokes, peeled and cut in 1/4-inch dice

1 cup Brussels sprouts, halved or quartered if large

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 poached chicken


Bring stock to boil in a soup pot. Add vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes or until tender-crisp. Add chicken breast or legs and thighs. Reheat. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into soup bowls. Slice chicken and serve on the soup.

Serve with garnishes of pink salt and anchovy mayonnaise.
