Another nice recipe Bron. And another great photo...its hard to photograph a bowl of soup, but your garnish has interesting colour and texture that is still in line with your soup flavour. Well done.

When does a recipe become your own.... when you cook it yourself. Ive had this discussion with a few proffesional chefs recently and the common theme is "all food is theft" of some sort (because people have been cooking forever). You manipulate, improve, or modify it, you fuse it but in the end, each dish comes out with an individuality of either the chef or the ingredients used. And when does anybody exactly follow a recipie.... (except when baking!)

Nothing makes me happier than when I see that my lovely Bron has posted. And I am never disappointed!

What a stunning soup. The photography (as usual) is too beautiful. (Do you have a Flickr account? If not you should start one.)

I can't wait for pumpkin season just so that I can try these recipes.

And by the way, I remember reading somewhere that once you've altered 3 ingredients in a recipe, it has become your own. Food for thought.

I wonder the same thing about when does a recipe become yours, Bron! I am queen of alterating every single recipe. I love the addition of coconut cream in the soup. Sounds and looks fantastic!

Hi Paul,
yes, I agree "all food is theft", I guess my question should have been... when can one republish a recipe as their own?
I don't often follow recipes even when baking and when I do, the little squares don't fit together! Hehe, I should have trusted my gut!
I rarely measure anything, normally work by 'feel' as my great-grandmother did.

Thank you Ivonne,
sorry the posts have been a tad far between, sadly my real life has been getting a bit in the way of my food blogging.
Yes, I do have a flickr account! Unfortunately it's another step to sort and upload them on there as well and time being precious...
I know the feeling! I can't wait for our asparagus season with all the lovely asparagus recipes that have been posted recently, this different season stuff is a right pain and a tease!

Hi Dianka,
I guess recipes are more inspirational guidelines, than a set of rules to follow. Thank you for your lovely comments!

What a beautiful soup Bron! Gorgeous orange shine! And your lime pesto idea is just genius! I will keep this on my list to try!

Your photo's are incredible, even something as "simple" as soup. This looks so good.

Thank you Tanna and Catherine, wish I could share some with you.
