Asparagus Soup

Asparagus SoupIt is rainy and gloomy today, but as I’ve been under the weather for the last couple of weeks it is a perfect day for me to stay home, watch vintage movies (I’m in the mood for something creepy and Vincent Pricey) and eat warm homemade soup.

I photographed this wonderful recipe for Event Magazine‘s current issue and not only is it delicious it is insanely easy to make. Puree ingredients, warm, eat; it doesn’t get much simpler  than that unless it is from a can, in which case it is usually rife with preservatives and sodium.Asparagus SoupThis recipe was created by the chefs at D & L Bistro. It is a wonderful location, with lots of nice nooks and crannies for me to photograph in and a lovely patio for pleasant weather dinning. Asparagus SoupAsparagus Soup

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.

  1. This soup looks delicate and lovely.

    It is spring here in New Zealand this is the first spring where I have started to like asparagus. I have been cooking with it and experimenting. I haven’t tried a soup yet though. This soup looks great for spring or autumn.

    This post would make a great addition to Our Growing Edge this month, a monthly link up for new food adventures. More info here: http://bunnyeatsdesign.com/our-growing-edge/

  2. I adore soup and even though it is spring here in Sydney it is cold and grey – a perfect meal fro this weather.
