I often prepare comforting soups and what could be more cozy than a barley soup with speck to enjoy on a cold winter day. This dish comes from Trentino Alto Adige and there are many variations to the basic recipe, however they all have barley, speck or smoked meat and veggies in common.

This is a tasty soup that will warm up a cool winter evening. It has a has a lot of cabbage and not as much liquid as you might expect in a soup.
