In January New Convent Garden Soup Co. is launching its first ever Soup of the Month, which has been created by you! In the summer 2011 they launched the Soup of the Month competition where soup fans were asked to submit their favourite soup recipe to the New Covent Garden website. The public were then asked to vote which one they thought was the nicest and then expert chefs made a shortlist. From the shortlist a winner was picked.
The Chinese New Year theme was won by Michael Lamont, well done to him. The soup was Chicken and Creamed Corn and now it is available on the shelves to buy. How amazing is that? The recipe was inspired by a soup his Dad used to cook for him using a method the Chinese term ‘egg-drop ‘soup, beaten eggs are gently dropped into the soup while it is cooking to give it a unique taste. The soup is a mix of tasty chicken, sweetcorn and spring onion and is ideal for the cold weather. It will warm you up while imparting its unique oriental flavours to celebrate Chinese New Year.
From now on, every New Covent Garden Soup of the Month will be created by soup fans of the nation. Each month a new theme will be unveiled which will inspire people to get creative in the kitchen. Currently the theme is ‘Shape up with Soup’ which is ideal for January. If you fancy seeing your soup recipe on the shelves then all you need to do is to submit your recipe to the New Covent Garden Website at www.newcoventgarden.com
