TIPS FROM CHEF TO CHEF

01.  Genuine cheese is a tasty and wholesome ingredient in any soup and can always be added. In some recipes it even forms a substantial part of the ingredients.

Genuine cheese is a good source of protein and can be used in vegetarian dishes.

02.  Cooking cream makes for a richer, smoother soup. It mellows the taste and is also a good flavour carrier.
