I wish my grandmother were still alive so I could take her to the new Heirloom Tavern in Glen Head and order her a bowl of the chicken noodle soup I devoured there one night last week.
While there was not a noodle to be found in the generous portion, there was much she would have admired: rich broth, loads of diced carrots, shredded chicken and, a sprightly surprise, lots and lots of tiny pieces of crunchy haricots verts.
I plan to adapt my own weekly pot of chicken soup which, after all these years, could do with a little makeover. I’ll just be sure to throw in some egg noodles in memory of my family recipe.
