Spilling the (red) beans

CorrespondentMarch 18, 2009 

Can you please get a recipe from the Carolina Inn for Southern red bean soup with shrimp and sausage? We had it as a starter a couple of weeks ago. I tried, but mine wasn't nearly as good. -- P.M., Chapel Hill

Jimmy Reale is executive chef at Carolina Crossroads (211 Pittsboro St.; 918-2777; www.carolinainn.com), the restaurant in the Carolina Inn.

Chef Reale gladly spills the beans.
