Chupín de Trucha – Fisherman’s Soup

When there’s a brisk Patagonian chill that fills the air, there’s one comforting food Francis wants to eat: chupín de trucha, or Fisherman’s soup with trout. “Chupín is the most beautiful word for a soup of fish,” Francis explains. Chupín is also known as fish stew and is commonly found across the region near lagoons, rivers, and fishermen’s towns. The name chupín comes from the Spanish word chupar. It’s a word commonly used in the phrase, “Para chuparse los dedos,” which means “finger-licking good”. The true taste of the chupín comes from the bones and the head of the fish, plus a lot of love and care. Francis will teach the skills to make this incredible broth and how to truly build and layer complex flavors with simple ingredients. This is a dish proven to nourish the body and soul.
