There’s something special about soup. Whether it’s the classics – Scotch broth, lentil, Cullen skink, oxtail – or a more exotic taste, a bowl of soup is the perfect dish to warm you up on a cold Scottish night.
Almost everyone will have fond memories of their granny’s lentil soup – a thousand tiny variations passed down through the generations.
It’s simple, cheap and healthy – not to mention a clever way to trick the kids into having their five a day.
But more than that, soup is a leveller. It brings people together to enjoy a shared experience.
