Jerusalem Artichoke and Cavolo Nero Soup

by Edward Daniel

Jerusalem Artichoke and Cavolo Nero Soup came about as I had a friend over Paul for lunch. He wanted something hearty and nourishing. I wanted to combine the subtle flavours of the Jerusalem artichokes, potatoes and cavolo nero, each is distinctive in its own right. I use lavender in this recipe because it enriches the smell. Perfect for a winter’s day.
