Ideally I would like to make my own soup but every now and then a quick meal is needed and I try to make it as healthy as I can. So our local store on Gabriola (Canada) had a special on the new Wolfgang Puck organic canned soups. They were on for 2 for $5. It’s really one meal in a can (no water added) so this could be a bit pricey for some people and also consider that the full price will be more than that. They will be less money in the US I would assume. However, the ingredients are very reasonable and all organic. So far the ones I have tried are truly excellent tasting. I’ve tried the Tortilla, Tomato and Basil, Chicken and Dumplings, Corn Chowder and Minestrone. There is gluten in some of them so if you are avoiding that, pay attention to the addition of pasta and flour in some varieties. There are a few other kinds but I haven’t tried them yet or we can’t get them here.
A little bit about Wolfgang Puck…if you don’t watch the Food Network, you might not know that he is a famous chef…:)
The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with the best of restaurant hospitality and the ultimate in all aspects of the culinary arts. The famous chef has built an empire that encompasses three separate Wolfgang Puck entities: Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, Wolfgang Puck Catering, and Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc.
Puck began cooking at his mother’s side as a child. She was a chef in the Austrian town where he was born, and with her encouragement, Wolfgang began his formal training at fourteen years of age. As a young chef he worked in some of France’s greatest restaurants, including Maxim’s in Paris, the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, and the Michelin 3-starred L’Oustau de Baumanière in Provence. At the age of 24, Wolfgang took the advice of a friend and left Europe for the United States. His first job was at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, where he worked from 1973 to 1975.
Wolfgang came to Los Angeles in 1975 and very quickly garnered the attention of the Hollywood elite as chef and eventually part owner of Ma Maison in West Hollywood. His dynamic personality and culinary brilliance that bridged tradition and invention made Ma Maison a magnet for the rich and famous, with Wolfgang as the star attraction. He had an innate understanding of the potential for California cuisine, and was pivotal in its rise to national attention during the late 1970s.

So all in all a VERY good tasting, relatively healthy choice for a quick meal or something you could take to work and heat up easily. I recommend it.
