The Local Farey Tale of Knoephla Soup

Knoephla Soup at Kroll’s Diner in Fargo, ND

One year ago I launched Local Farey Tales. And it’s been an incredible labor of love. I’ve loved getting to “meet” all the Tale-Tellers over Zoom or phone and then sharing their tales with people far and wide.

While I took a break to regroup for Season 2, I’m happy to announce that the new season has officially begun with the release of “The Local Farey Tale of Knoephla Soup”.

When I first spoke to the artist, Jonathan Reich, about creating the Local Farey Tales logo, he revealed he was from North Dakota. I remembered trying “lumpy yellow soup” when in Fargo but couldn’t remember the official name. Jonathan was quick to inform me about it and the soup was put on the list for a future episode. When the time finally came to start interviews, I knew I had to include Jonathan and I’m happy to say he agreed to contribute to this episode.

This episode is the shortest one yet but no less filled with lots of info & anecdotes!

You can listen to the episode here or anywhere you stream podcasts.

Note: The photo is from the first time I had Knoephla Soup. It was at Kroll’s Diner in Fargo, ND where it’s also known as “Lumpy Yellow Soup”. 🙂
