Across cultures, there's something about a warm bowl of soup that warms your heart while it fills your stomach. On the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, soup is deeply intertwined with its Creole, African, and Indian roots ruled under the French. Whether from Colombo to Congo, there is a soup for every taste and every occasion. And in a small house on a narrow street in a quiet neighborhood in Pointe-a-Pitre, a man named Jean-Claude Magnat recreates his family soups for both locals and visitors looking for something good to eat. At An Chodye´ La (known on the island as Kaz a Soup), patrons are encouraged to sample everything from a savory lobster bisque-style delicacy to the hearty goat stew to its famous "Ouassous Giromon," a thick, hearty soup made with pumpkin and river shrimp.
