Classic Tomato Soup

This is a beautiful classic tomato soup that has been a part of my cooking repertoire for many years. When I make soups in my home, I go for simplicity and freshness, so that I can immerse my senses in the unadulterated flavour of the ingredients. I don’t use a vegetable stock, I use plain filtered water as I find that using stock can sometimes interfere and complicate that naturalness of this soup. Adding 1 red apple adds a wonderful hint of sweetness and a generous grind... Read More
