I was supposed to reveal the secret of the soup a bit earlier, but we had such an amazing and wonderful weekend in Stockholm (I spent time with good friends in the archipelago) that I didn't manage to settle down and write until now. You might know that the days are getting shorter pretty fast already here, and in September the weather is usually getting chillier. So, because of this unusually warm sun we couldn't lose a minute of it. Of course I didn't forget you and I hope you are still excited about the soup!
As I wrote before, I recently learned that my ancestor became famous for having invented a soup, as a result of which he was appointed the official cook at the court of England. This took place during Victoria's reign and apparently the uncanny recipe would have been… a turtle soup!!! How strange this sounds to me! For this reason, I took pretext of my pea soup with a touch of mint to share this story with you.
I want to thank my family members who helped me in my research and in particular Anne. She also told me that we still have a picture of the can that would have contained the soup. I didn't received it yet but I do I'll publish it!
