Celery 1 pkg. washed and quarter. ( Do not use the ends or the leaves in stew it will sour it.)
Carrots ( Pre- Boil ) so they are 1/2 ...

Foods for Fall?

Chicken Wild Rice Soup....

Although it does not feel like Fall weather outside now it soon will be, and we will all need to get ready for it right????

What do you need to do, here is my basic list that I always, alw...

What is your favorite soup during this Winter ?
I have many fav's such as the one pictured. Since a Chef never ever throws almost anything away because you might be able to use it in something. Of course it must be okay to do so, but I always save my meat bones and leftovers for soups , they have already been cooked and seasoned so they only need some vegies and broth or gravy added to them and Whala you h...

                                                                      Italian Sausage Soup



Recipes are just guidelines. I have said that comment to people for years. Yes they are necessary when you start a new recipe and you liked how that turned out. But, and here it comes you make it again and say to yourself I wonder if I added this what that would do or how it would taste.
That is how recipes get changed or tweaked like I like to say. I am always tweaking, twisting, and improving on my r...

Beef Vegetable Soup!

Vegetable Beef Soup
By
Chef Gianna
Good soup starts with a good stock, or as laymen would say a good foundation.
This soup pictured started out as a pulled beef recipe and I always make extra because you can turn it into something else later on.

Knowing that when you are preparing a recipe will save you time $$$$ and less stress as you are cooking.

Here is what I did to make this very hearty, healthy delicious soup.

Ingredients:
1 green bell pepper (diced)
1 sweet white onion ( diced)
3 tbsps. Beef Bro...

Vegetable Soup

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Saturday, October 8, 2011, In : Soup's On @ Divadish 
Divadish & Chef Gianna love, the Farmers Markets. Fall vegetables are still in abundance and there are so many wonderful choices.

The picture here is just one thing you can make from a good red sauce, and fresh market vegetables.
My freezer would not be Happy if it does not have at least (6-10 ) quarts of soup frozen and waiting to be pulled out for any accompaniment to a meal or as the whole meal, of course with my crusty bread & butter.

This soup has a new little twist added to it, m...

Soup's on @ Divadish Kitchens!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Sunday, September 25, 2011, In : Soups and Fall Meals@Divadish 

Divadish  believes the best quality and taste comes from making your food in small Batches and by Hand!
This is the only way to make good food says Chef Gianna, and good food is what Divadish is all about.

The picture above is just one of those small batched soups that comes out of our kitchens.
Chef Gianna likes to call it one of her Masterpieces, because it is not a watery, thinned down version of what other resturants tell you is soup.
It is thicker, full of meats & vegetables, cheeses, ...

"Picture this," as Estelle Getty from Golden Girls use to say before she went into her story!

Soup is always on my menus when I prepare food for my clients.

Added a little semi - sweet red wine and  good amounts of Italian seasonings.
Simmered for 6-8 hours and let the flavors come together and HMMMMMMMM...
