As all my lovely facebook followers will know, I promised this ‘how to’ a couple of weeks ago.
It’s so cute and with V Day coming up, it’s a fun thing to pop on that soup you cook up for your significant other. It looks even cuter with the red background of my Tomato and Lemongrass Soup and it’s super easy to do! All you need is some double cream, a cocktail stick, a teaspoon and of course some soup! I used Carrot and Coriander as that’s what I fancied the day I took these pics.
Just start off with the cream and your teaspoon, very gently make a dot of cream in the centre of the soup.
Continue in a spiral of dots working outwards until you reach the edge of the bowl.
Next, take your cocktail stick and place the tip into the soup just before the first dot.
Basically, what you need to do here is to drag the stick through the soup in a spiral shape cutting through the centre of each cream dot on the way and you’re done!
This works well with so many different foods, why not get all romantic and give it a go? If you bodge it up, just stir in the cream and start again! What? You didn’t see the original photo on facebook, it’s never too late to start following me!
