  • About

The arrival of the first sorrel leaves means that summer is really on its way. This soup, with its clean, sharp flavour, comes as an early celebration of the new season.

By adding the sorrel to the soup at the last moment only, the brilliant green of the fresh leaves and their lively acidity are preserved. Be careful not to overheat the soup before serving since the green may turn to sludge brown.
