Everyday Food with a Hint of Celebration

Tomatillo Soup at Nordstrom Café. Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg, IL

I was recently delighted to find that tomatillos, the main ingredient in salsa verde, were creatively used to craft this delicious soup at my local Nordstrom Café. This glorious bowl knows how to please crowds while giving a secret handshake to Mexican food fans- the soup brilliantly merges both the everyday salsa and the celebratory pozole. If you know what this means, I am sure you are nodding in agreement.

The chef at this hidden gem is a curator, an artist, an interpreter. This dish captures some of the most representative ingredients of Mexican cuisine,  pours them into a glorious cup and serves them with a side of memories- both special, and deliciously quotidian.
