Over the weekend...I took in a local food festival which featured celebrity chefs on the main stage and samplings of menu items from popular local restaurants.
...but I took home an autographed recipe card and thought I would gave it the taste-test in my own kitchen.
This is my adaptation of his soup...with which I took many liberties! His recipe was a very rough guideline at best...since ingredients were listed by weight, which means little to me. I used butternut squash, since that was handy...and apples instead of parsnips...and I forgot to add the carrot. Though his recipe lists no cream...I saw him generously pouring in heavy cream...and so I did likewise. We quite enjoyed our Rob Feenie inspired soup on a 'soupy Monday'!
One more thing. If you happen to live in my part of the country...you might be interested in knowing that the Cactus Club is opening a restaurant in Abbotsford next spring. Oh...and if you go...be sure to check out their washrooms. They are always special!
