Ken Albala cooked noodle soup every morning for breakfast for several years. Using handmade noodles made with every imaginable ingredient, homemade stock and fresh vegetables, he also broke every rule about what you are not supposed to do. The results were remarkable, often rooted in history, and, just as often wildly innovative, they will make you rethink what noodle soup is all about.
