Cold winter evenings are the best time to concoct a deliciously warming supper dish and my favourite is a glorious brightly coloured Carrot and Fresh Ginger Soup. When you arrive back at the hotel chilled from your day’s activities out and about in Exmouth a hearteningly wholesome dish is very welcome. This soup even looks warm with it’s fantastic rich orange colour with a sprig of green added to the serving.
I personally love popping into the kitchen when winter soups are being prepared as the steam and aromas alone give me that wonderful cosy feeling which i know our guests will also enjoy when the bowl is placed in front of them at dinner.
Our chef’s successful recipe :
