My all time favourite has to be the Tuscan Chicken & Orzo soup. It's tomatoey, savoury, with a hint of sweetness and I love the textures of the vegetables with the orzo pasta and finely shredded chicken. And it certainly transports me to Italy, the home of hearty cooking!
All of the Glorious! soups are inspired by adventures around the world, and recently the Sunny Thai Chicken soup has been on my radar since the flavours remind me of a wonderful holiday I had in Thailand almost a decade ago. It's well know that certain tastes and smells link in with our memories and can transport us right back to those moments left behind in history.
We took rides on an elephant, had a simply luxurious day in a Thai spa and got pampered like a princess. Booking to see a lady boy show felt so naughty and exhilarating at the same time, and it was at that show we managed to bump into uni friends (from London) who happened to be in Phuket at the same time AND watched the same show as us!
Every morning started off with a delicious breakfast buffet in our indulgent hotel followed by trips to the beach. Digging my toes into the sand is a sure way to completely unwind and enjoy being on holiday.
Now that my friend and I are in our 30's (and still as good friends as we were back then!) with many responsibilities at home, it's no longer easy to just hop on a plane like we did 10 years ago. But thanks to Glorious! I've just had a great time reminiscing the past through these treasured photos. Now please excuse me whilst I send my friend a watsapp message to chat about the good old days!
