This soup may be found on most Jewish deli menus. The dish has its origins in Eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish communities. Mushrooms were popular in these cold-weather regions because they could be picked, dried, and preserved for later use. In my friend Etti Hadar's family biography, her Polish uncle Dov Levin recalls his mother stringing rows of mushrooms in the attic using a thread and needle. They'd hang the mushrooms near the chimney since the heat from the stove would dry them off quicker.
