    Frequently tattooed, always playing with fire, and typically seen wielding knives, chefs tend to be a pretty badass breed. But when the winter winds start howling, they start jonesing for a little comfort food, just like the rest of us. That’s why we asked some of our favorite local gourmets, including Kristine Subido of The Pecking Order and Jess De Guzman of Sunda, to share their favorite recipes for the most classic of wintertime comfort foods: chicken soup.

    We also uncovered each of their secret ingredients for guarding your soul from the wintertime blues—whether it’s getting playful with your pots and pans or slipping on a divinely cozy (we won’t tell) Snuggie. So, pull out your celery, carrots, knives, and ready-to-wear blankets, and read on for tips on whipping up everything from matzo ball soup to French garbure, Mexican pozole rojo, and Filipino arroz caldo. We promise, you'll be feeling better in no time.
