    Keller Chicken Soup & Dumplings

    First of all, I have cooked this soup (once) before and posted briefly about it here on the forum, but this time I took pictures. I loved the soup, so I wanted to make it again, but the wife is also pregnant and when I mentioned Keller's chicken soup, it was the first time she felt hungry in a week -- so to the stove I go.

    I would like to start by saying that Keller says this is a simple soup -- it is not. Even if you wash dishes while you go, your kitchen will look like crap. I recommend cooking it in two days as you can prepare a lot of it ahead of time. I usually do the roux, celery, chicken, stock and carrots ahead of time and leave the soup base and dumplings for the end.

    Picture 1: Dumpling quenelles boiling.
    Picture 2: Finished dumplings.
    Picture 3: Keller's green celery. His method preserves the green color amazingly well.
    Picture 4: Finished soup.
    Picture 5: Wine I drank with the soup: Michel Gassier 'Nostre Pais' Blanc 2010. [WA-92, IWR-92, WS-90, RR-91] all for only $14. Great buy.
    Picture 6: New kitchen tools. I didn't use all of them for the soup, but there is a Mario and Marko along with two sheaths by Eamon for my Rodrigue and Devin Thomas.

    Nice I'm craving soups lately but the never ending 105+ temps have kept me from cooking much at all

    Looks great. Congrats on the soon-to-be new addition to your family. How many does that make for you?
    I've got one of each, but my wife says we're done. I'm trying to talk her out of it.

    Thanks, knyfe. I have two girls, so maybe it will be a boy this time. The wife's a radiologist so she will be on the lookout.

    Looks delicious! I haven't made this, but I can certainly relate to the kitchen mess! And congrats on your upcoming edition. My best to your wife during the process.

    That soup uses a ton of dishes and takes a long time, but it is excellent. I think I thickened mine a bit more than yours but it is excellent anyway you make it.
