I named the soup in her honor," says Chef Quaglia. "It's essentially her recipe, but of course, keeping to the original spirit of using only local fish, we use fish from our west coast. When my Mum first opened her restaurant, I was 13 years old, and I used to visit and help from time to time. I already had a passion for cooking and baking. Making this fish soup brings back memories of that time and the experience of roasting all the tiny rock fishes to create the soup's intense flavour. It's a wonderful comfort food and brings the sunshine of Provence to your table even on Vancouver's dreariest of gray days."
