This is THE LAMB SOUP for a quiet, intimate evening on a rainy day. My family uses white burgundy wine which blends wonderfully with the vegetables and ends up tasting a bit sweet. Children wont even know there's wine in the soup. Celery gives a rustic, fresh taste. TRULY, WONDERFUL RUSTIC TASTING SOUP. Got the recipe from Pietro Petroni's : The Complete Book of Florentine Cooking while I was in Florence.
