Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing After Loss
Some cooking requires that you measure ingredients exactly. But making soup is different. Soup making is an art, and you are the artist. Improvising as you go, your only goal is that the blended creation will both satisfy your hunger and soothe what hurts you. “What’s true about soup making, is also true about grieving.” In our richly illustrated new book, Grandy has just suffered a big loss in her life, and so she is cooking up her own unique batch of “tear soup.” Tear Soup gives you a glimpse into Grandy’s life as she blends different ingredients into her own grief process. Her tear soup will help to bring her comfort and ultimately help to fill the void in her life that was created by her loss. Following Grandy’s story you will find cooking tips to use in dealing with grief: if you are the cook, if your friend is the cook, soup making and time, if a child is the cook, if you are a male chef, if there are two of you cooking.
