CHEF’S NOTE

"Choose high-quality canned Italian tomatoes: they will be less acidic, with thicker juice. I prefer not to cook the basil, to ensure it keeps its “green” flavour. Good ingredients and a simple preparation: those are the secrets to a great recipe!


I like to keep any leftover bread. Once it’s a few days old, I slice it thin and toast it in the oven. That’s why this soup only takes a few minutes to make. Depending on which bread I use, I always discover new aromas. The aroma of a nice fougasse or even a sprouted-grain bread is simply irresistible".
