One of the best ways to warm up in winter is to eat something hot and delicious. Famed culinary maverick Justine Drake has the perfect offer in this regard, with a delectable Mediterranean Fish Soup and Red Pepper Rouille. This meal is perfect as either a starter or a main and, as suggests Drake, should be served with fresh, crusty bread and a glass (or two) of Two Oceans’ Sauvignon Blanc.
Although the Rouille (a creamy red pepper, garlic and chilli sauce) is not essential, Drake states that it really does take the soup to a whole new level. Also, the addition of the odd fish head or shellfish carcass present in the cooking process may sound a little bizarre to the unimaginative, but they add depth of flavour to the soup- just remember to remove them before serving!
