"At times, miss O'Keeffe spoke of winter memories from Wisconsin when she was young. Going to the horse barn to ask the man to saddle the horses for pulling the sled, toboggan rides in the moonlight, making an imprint of her coat in the snow... on cold nights, by fire and candlelight, this almond soup was quite delicate and substantial." - Margaret Wood, author
