Jane Grossman Stern and Michael Stern are American writers who specialize in books about travel, food, and popular culture. They are best known for their "Roadfood" books, website, and magazine columns, in which they seek out restaurants serving American regional specialties. (Sort of a precursor to "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives".) This recipe was published over 25 years ago, and I used to alternate this with my Recipe #294487 to use my turkey carcass. I have also used orzo in this soup with great success. For either of my soups, I usually begin to make the stock or broth right after all my guests have left. I refrigerate it overnight, and make the soup the next day. You do need a meaty carcass to start with, which I couldn't indicate in the ingredient list.
