It’s debatable whether chicken noodle soup can cure the common cold, but it’s undeniable that it makes you feel better. The aroma of the simmering chicken, vegetables, and herbs alone will soothe anyone’s aching bones.
Beverage pairing: Gustave Lorentz Pinot Blanc Réserve, France. This wine is crisp, firm, and bright, making it a nice contrast to the soft, creamy noodles and gentle stock. In addition, its citrus- and apple-tinged fruit has a hint of spice, which will harmonize nicely with the gingered broth.
