I tasted this soup in Shipton under Whychwood.
In a seven hundred years old Inn.
It’s worth of visiting this beautiful building.
Both the environment and the soup were delicious.
That’s why I decided to reproduce it.
It was simply scrumptious!
300 g catfish fillets, cut to inch peace’s

I love this dish very much!!
Do you feel hungry? Are you stressed and you want to nibble something?
Or just you want a good inter-meals meal?
Don’t ever eat chips, sweet or salted snacks!
This dish gives you the right balanced snack you need.
You can use different jams, chutneys to give a special flavour to your mayonnaise dressing.
2 Little gem cut to two wedges
1 can sardines, drained, broken
1 tbsp yoghurt
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp white wine vinegar
Salt and black pepper to your tasting
Caramelized onion rings
A few cherry tomatoes, halved
Seedless grapes halved
Four- five times a week I eat poultry, mainly chicken.
To keep diversity in front of my eyes I rotate different vegetable side dishes with the meat.
This time I prepared green peas with baby carrots.
In this recipe I used tinned peas except the onions.
You can use fresh peas and baby carrots if you like.
- 1 tablespoons butter
- 6 pearl onions, peeled and halved or quartered
- 4 – 5 cm chorizo slices,
- 1 tin green peas
- 1 tin baby carrots
- 1/4 cup/60 ml chicken stock
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 bib lettuce, cored and sliced
Melt the butter and fry the chorizo slightly.
Add the chopped onion, the onion sections the chopped garlic and fry on medium heat a for a few minutes.
Add the shredded lettuce and stir fry until wilted.
Finally add the drained peas.
Season with a crumbled chicken bouillon cube, salt and black pepper, red chili flakes.
Add a little water the pea if it’s too dry.
It’s ready in a few minutes.
Enjoy with grilled chicken breast of chicken a la Milanese.
Or with grilled halloumi cheese.
Another good alternative is poached salmon.
Always tailor the chicken breast hence it will be cooked evenly.
I always cut the breast to 1 cm thick escaloppe.
Chicken breast cut to 1 cm thick pieces
Rocket or maché leaves
French vinaigrette dressing
I use raw beetroot. It gives the crunchiness to the salad.
I toss with the salad leaves only in the last minute to avoid making the salad red by beetroot.
Another tasteful dish lo lose fat from around your waist.
Eggs give all the necessary nutrients you need.
The tomato sauce which I like when it’s thick gives your carb and fat supply.
