This is a recipe that I lost and just found today so I am posting it. It was created by Michael Symon and posted on the Calphalon site many years ago. He states that this soup was made famous by his grandfather. It is my all time favorite chicken soup although I have never had truffles to add to the dumplings. I am posting it in it's original form even though I cheat and replace about half of the chicken stock with water. I also simplify some of the stock making steps and throw some additonal minced tarragon into the final pot. This makes a LOT of soup.
