The soup is perfect. Pumpkin (I’m still working through the great harvest of 2011, only four left), five spice, garlic, ginger, chilli (lots), lemongrass, fish sauce, rice, coconut milk, stock, salt and a good pinch of pepper. Should have had lime juice, it didn’t the fruit bowl could only offer a lemon.
It’s nearly Valentine’s, can you feel the romance? No, me neither, but there’s time.
