Dear SOS: I wrote to you several months ago about an incredible winter root vegetable soup that I had at the Lido Restaurant in Shell Beach, Calif. It was served as part of a menu for last January’s Restaurant Month. I have searched your column for it, but have never seen my request. I realize you probably get thousands of requests and can’t respond (or obtain) all of the requested recipes, but I was sure hoping!
Dear Margaret: Thank you so much for your request! We receive dozens of requests each week and try our best. Still, obviously, we don’t have time or space to test and run them all. But chef Evan Treadwell of Lido Restaurant graciously provided the recipe you’re looking for, which we’ve adapted below.
