Where to find warmth in a bowl this winter

Thai chicken and coconut soup

Patricia Yeo, of Khong River House in Miami Beach, Fla., dishes out a soup with fragrant flavors found along Southeast Asia’s Mekong River. The restaurant’s executive chef and Top Chef Master alumnus takes all-natural chicken that’s steeped in a steaming bowl of coconut milk with fiery chilies, fresh cilantro, along with fish sauce, spiked with lime and fresh ginger. The result is an herbaceous broth with hearty chicken that makes for an exotic, yet soul-warming dish.
