Seemingly simple, it's the quality of the bread makes this recipe "sing" so buy the best egg bread available. My daughter Lucie demands that I make this dish for her every Saturday morning.

FYI-The "toast" in this illustration is made from model magic clay, hand colored with oil pastel.

My mother made homemade soup every Friday when I was a kid. The smell of the chicken, veggies including the parsley was amazing. It is one of the most powerful memories I have of my childhood. I wanted the feeling in this image to be dream like and evoke the feeling of a memory.
