A favourite Spanish soup from ” Cook “, the first recipe book by Thomasina Miers which I bought in 2007 and which i think is now out of print. If your guests are squeamish about runny eggs poach the eggs in the soup or separately before serving , but the Spanish would never do this!
A comforting soup from ” Wahaca Mexican Food at Home” by Thomasina Miers.
Another soup recipe from Armenia which I found in ” Samarkand” by Caroline Eden and Eleanor Ford.
