According to chef Jenn Louis, a bowl of chicken soup is the ultimate gesture of love. In her new book, The Chicken Soup Manifesto, the James Beard Award–nominated chef explores this comfort food staple and its many interpretations around the world—including her own mother’s matzo ball soup.

In this conversation between Louis and Evan Kleiman (KCRW’s Good Food), discover mouthwatering culinary traditions, flavors, and folklore from cultures as diverse as Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Eastern Europe.
