Just want to let you know that I have finally added the promised Garlic Soup recipe to my profile. I hope when you taste it you will think it was worth the wait!

Janice, that sounds a nice soup. I will give it a try, especially if the weather turns cold. Thanks for sharing it.

Yummy Garlic Soup

Have just made it, more or less following Janice's recipe but used beef stock. Haven't yet added the cream - will do that before I reheat it tomorrow. Tastes rather good!

Garlic soup

Made this yesterday & actually served it in tea cups as an appetiser at dinner party with small slice of home made olive bread in the saucer. Also fried some garlic slices till crisp & floated them on the top & just put a couple of shavings of parmesan in the base of each cup.

A real winner, full of flavour - everyone very complimentary!

Garlic Soup

Lucky guests! Like the idea of the tea cups. What else did you serve?

Other things served...

We had goats cheese tarts & rocket salad (brought by guest), whole baked salmon in rosemary salt crust with new pots & roasted veg (fennel, butternut squash, peppers), then twice baked choc souffles with dark choc sauce &/or a toffee apple torte with toffee apple jelly & calvados cream; & cheese. And plenty of wine, naturally!

Garlic soup

That all sounds divine Q of P and a good serving idea for the soup. Being a fairly thin soup it never is quite sufficient for a main course and so serving as an appetiser is a good idea. Do you add olives to your bread or just olive oil? I love making bread and that sounds interesting. Any chance of the recipe please?

Bread with olives

I'm afraid I usually wing it with my bread. I make dough using my standard white or brown recipe as per the breadmaker recipe booklet but using the dough setting & then once ready, turn it out & divide one quantity into 3 or 4 portions, adding herbs to one, black onion seeds etc to another, some with cheese on top. With the olive bread I grab a handful of pitted mixed olives (or whatever I have), chop them fine & squish them into the dough before shaping into tiny ciabatta shapes (usually about 56g per roll) & then drizzle each with olive oil before they prove. Works for me ... one quantity of dough makes around 12 - 16 dinner rolls. But the soup was divine - will def make it again.
PS I like to use Carrs bread flour. Other than that, normal recipe.

Olive bread

Thanks for that Queen of Puds. I will try adding chopped olives to my dough. I too have a trusty recipe for loaves & rolls. Do you use green or black olives? Green have more flavour so may try those. So pleased you enjoyed the garlic soup.
