Winter has officially set in (she says sitting on the sun lounger in Thailand…sorry), however I can honestly say no matter how many years I’ve live in a tropical climate, Christmas is not Christmas unless it’s cold, so I am very envious of all you folk wrapping up for winter. But fear not! I pulled this recipe out the back of my archive from when I lived in England and it never failed to disappoint me in the slightest. While I’m writing this, I’m reminiscing about the cold winter nights leading up to Christmas, huddled in front of a fire, watching an old re-run on TV with a bowl of this rich hearty soup in hand; ah, Christmas time (weep).
