Outside of Northstar in Truckee, California, Full Belly Deli, led by Chef Tom Marrin, provided a wonderful soup for the Ski Town Soups cookbook - Beer Cheese and Jalapeño Sausage Soup! What makes this soup even more spectacular is the Baked Soft Pretzel Bites that should be “paired” with the soup!
Do you want to elevate your performance on the ski slopes next season? Try beets to ramp-up your energy levels and speed. In a recent article from Outside Magazine called “Never Miss a Beet”, the root vegetable was praised for its nitrates which improve efficiency in a workout or training regimen. Allen Lim, a well-known sports physiologist, claims to have seen “some of the best real-world performances from athletes who make [beets] part of their diet”.
As the print date draws near, Ski Town Soups continues to check-off the remaining items on the to-do list!

Along with photos that we’ve already received from restaurants and ski resorts, these shots of ladles serving Chicken Tortilla Soup, suspended spoons with Pomegranate Salsa, bread bowls filled with World Famous Artichoke and Cheddar Soup, colorful tones of Watermelon Gazpacho, and rustic textures of Goulash will enchant a reader or home cook!
