Hello. I am looking for a recipe that I THINK was from La Cucina Italiana magazine.  
We made it for a holiday dinner and are nostalgic for it. It was a brodo of clear 
broth, and FINELY diced vegetables and chicken that had been, I believe, made into 
a mousse, set and then it too was finely diced to match the vegetables. If I am not 
mistaken this issue had MORE than 1 brodo recipe in the issue.  It was NOT just 
poached chicken, I believe we seasoned the chicken, pureed it, let it set and then 
cut up into fine diced cubes to match the small veggies. Hope you can help or 
someone might have seen this recipe in the past.

Thanks so much!!!

Hello Anthony,

I did not have any success searching for a particular issue of La Cucina Italiana magazine that contained multiple "brodo" recipes. Your description of making the soup is not very helpful. That procedure could be the beginning of many, many Italian soup recipes. Your soup probably had a specific name, not just "brodo." "Brodo" or "brodo di pollo" is just chicken broth or chicken soup, Italian Style. It's the base for a lot of soups, but most of them have various added ingredients, usually pasta or vegetables. Optimally, if you can recall the specific name of your soup, I might have some success. Without that, I'm not having any luck. There is a lot of variety - I can't identify it without specifics - the more, the better. "Finely diced" is just not enough.

I will post this, but unless someone has that issue of La Cucina Italiana with all of the brodo recipes and unless they can deduce which particular recipe you are describing, then I would not have much hope.

If there are no responses, then your best option might be to email La Cucina Italiana magazine. You can get their address from their website.They may not give you a recipe, but if you ask (beg), they might tell you which issue it was in. If they won't send you that back issue, maybe you can find it for sale on Ebay or one of the other sites that sell back issues of magazine.

La Cucina Italiana has a Facebook page here: La Cucina Italiana USA and a website at: La Cucina Italiana

thank you. After nearly 3 weeks, I found the actual menu I created in 2009 and it had 
the name of the soup so I found that and translated it into English. I appreciate you 
trying, thankfully I am all set.
