    /24-7PressRelease/ - SCHAUMBURG, IL, December 09, 2007 - It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's also the most common time to catch that nagging cold and flu floating around the office. With cold weather sweeping from California to the Carolinas, flu season is here to stay. One of the most time-honored and tasty ways to minister to these ailments is a good dose of warm, hearty chicken soup. Chef Joshua Humphrey of Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center knows this medical mystery very well and is sharing his recipe on his favorite variation of traditional chicken soup, which he is now featuring at the hotel restaurant and will also be available by special request.
Chicken Noodle Soup doesn't have to include all the traditional elements to get you back in the game. Chef Humphrey has created a distinctive twist on classic noodle soup with his Thai Chicken Noodle Soup. The recipe calls for a handful of simple ingredients including ginger, soy sauce, fish oil, coconut milk, lemongrass, red chilies, tamarind and free range chicken with thin noodles to warm not only the belly, but the soul as well.
"Creating unique cuisine inspired by classic favorites is my passion," explains Joshua Humphrey, chef at the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois. "Who doesn't crave a steaming bowl of soup when they're feeling under the weather? At the Renaissance we thrive on making guests feel at home, and there's nothing like a bowl of Thai Chicken Noodle Soup when it's cold outside, to do just that."
