French Cabbage Soup
I have to admit… I took liberties with this recipe a few years ago, and I absolutely won’t look back. See, back in my younger years, I did some time in the kitchen of the old Frontier Motor Inn in Clinton, Iowa as a prep cook. One of my responsibilities was making the daily soup du jour. I got stuck one day and started looking through old recipes in the restaurant kitchen binder. That’s when I found a handwritten recipe for French Cabbage Soup by the owner’s wife, Grandma Baker. (I don’t know what her name was… I only ever knew the owners as Grandma and Grandpa Baker. If you ever knew the Bakers and know what her name was, feel free to comment…).
