Roasted Tomato Mascarpone Soup

A cookbook writer that truly surprised me (in a good way) is Sophie Dahl.  If you're around my age, you will remember Sophie as being the +size model from England who caused a stir on catwalks all over the world. 

She now has two cookbooks on the market.  Both of which I have, and both of which I love.  Her recipes are lovely, simple and straightforward and quoting straight from the horses mouth, she is someone "who likes to cook and then write about what she's cooked, not a chef or a teacher."

I like that. It sounds like me. 

With an evening picnic to plan, I wanted some simple, flavoursome and of course, transportable food to take.  How could I resist this recipe. 

It sounded perfect.....

Light, subtle and absolutely moreish. I loved this soup.

Laying back on the rug under the stars on a warm Summer's eve watching Romeo and Juliet, this soup fitted my mood perfectly.

Perfectly refreshing!
