"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Carrot and Potato Soup

A very common soup drank since young, usually known as “ABC soup”, because my mum used to put in alphabet macaroni into the soup for us when we were little kids. It is important to get sweet carrots, onions and good potatoes, otherwise your soup will not taste naturally-sweet.

1. Boil 5 big bowls of water.
2. Add in roasted pork bones (烧猪骨) into the water to boil together. Alternatives are pork ribs or chicken bones. Boil under gentle fire for one hour.
3. Cut up large onions, carrots and potatos. Together with pork (addition: chicken legs), add them into the boiling soup and boil for another hour.
4. Season according to your tastebuds – salt, soy sauce, pepper, chicken stocks.
