When many Greek-Americans think about traditional home cooking, Avgolemono soup naturally comes to mind. It's the family gathering, holiday and rainy-day comfort food. It's the stay-home-from-school-with-a-cold-food. Avgolemono is the Greek answer to "Jewish Penicillin" aka chicken soup. Conjuring up delicious flavors of chicken, manestra (orzo) and lemon as well as nostalgic memories and family history, this is a recipe that many Greek children grew up with and that has been handed down from generation to generation.
