Souped Up

North Texas may not be renowned for its cold weather (white Christmases aside), but you don't really need to be hiding from a snowstorm or lounging by a crackling fireplace to remind you that it's soup season. Before winter's come and gone, head on over to the Dallas Central Market's cooking school (5750 E. Lovers Lane) for a Sensational Seasonal Soups class and learn to make warm and filling soups like Spicy Winter Squash Soup with Cheddar Chile Croutons, Wild Mushroom and Orzo Soup with Italian Meatballs and, as a special sweet treat, Frozen Hot Chocolate Soup. The cooking begins 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Central Market, 5750 E. Lovers Lane. The class is $70, by reservation, and includes a copy of Meredith Deeds' 300 Sensational Soups.
