ASHLEY CATHCART & JOSH SINNOTT /
KRYPTIC LOUNGE BAR AND RESTAURANT
It would be pointless mounting a defence for the case of canned versus homemade soups – there is no contest. The recent cooler weather was the perfect opportunity to remind ourselves how a hearty bowl of soup and a chunk of crusty bread can be the perfect meal. Even better, there are always seconds. In Soups, Anna Helm Baxter uses fresh seasonal ingredients to create soups for every occasion, from hearty stew-type offerings to light, fresh summery soups. There is also a chapter on toppings which elevates a good soup into a great one, so ditch the packets or cans and create something you’d be proud to share.
