Tom Yum Soup

Tom yum soup is a Thai mainstay with thousands of versions of the recipe out there, this one is mine, characteristically (for me) spicy and warming and packed with shrimp and mushrooms

I love thai flavours, there is just something magical about the combinations of flavours that are pure magic, this Tom Yum Soup relies on all of the flavours you associate with that part of the world, lemongrass, kafir lime leaf, fish sauce and of course chili all feature in this soup.

Ribollita

If I want hearty tasty peasant food I rarely look further than Italy and this Ribollita is the most magical bean and tomato soup that makes great use of bread.

The Italians just seem to own frugal, hearty, magical peasant food and this Ribollita is just another example of that, whether it is risotto or pasta, great Italian food is often cheap as chips to make and packs such an incredible punch of flavour.
