In mid-December 2010, I asked Field & Feast Facebook followers if any of them wanted to be on the radio show and prepare a recipe they planned to make for Super Bowl Sunday. Len Fillmore was the first to volunteer. Yet, when she said she planned to make Winter Squash Chutney, I was skeptical.

Lenora “Len” Fillmore of Georgetown, Texas, was kind enough to volunteer to cook on the radio for a Field & Feast segment focusing on foods home cooks serve at their Super Bowl parties. Get to know her–you’ll be glad you did.
Because we have two shows this weekend featuring different cooks with different recipes, I decided to put up the web pages that would ordinarily go live on Saturday now. It gives my guest a little extra “face time” with you, and give you a little extra “taste time” with her delicious Winter Squash Chutney recipe.
If you’re like a lot of us, some produce items in you refrigerator seem to linger longer on the shelves and in crisper than you ever intended, and for reasons that elude you.

Chris Newton and Greg Stephan are the Spang Consortium. I learned long ago with these guys, it’s best not to ask too many questions, like, “What does Spang Consortium mean?” They might just tell you.
I personally believe that soupé is a state of mind. A happy place of bygone days where berries, pods and apples were edible and if you played around with an android it was only because you were on the Starship Enterprise.
Silliness prevails when The Spang Consortium visits Field & Feast. Yet, in an effort to offer something useful to visitors, Greg Stephan (half of the Consortium), offers tips on how to buy cans of stuff from the store.
Eating from the land—including the occasional harvest of wild game for the table—was very much the norm for my mother’s family.
Beer is good. Cheese is good. Put the two together and they make one heck of a soup. Try Cindy Feyereisen’s Wisconsin Beer Cheese Soup, and you’ll have the goods.
My friend Cindy Feyereisen is a personal chef and caterer living in Austin, Texas, which makes her a great friend to have. I asked if she had a cheese soup recipe or two to share with us during Soup Month, and she kindly stepped up to the plate–make that pot.
