Today I am thinking about pumpkin soup. Too early for pumpkins, but not too early to plan. I have never forgotten the fabulous pumpkin soup we had in Malaucene, in Provence. It was smooth, slightly sweet, velvety deliciousness. I would have been happy with a big bowl of soup and a toasty baguette. However, it was the first course, gone in a few minutes, but never forgotten.
So, for the next few weeks, I am going to seek out recipes for pumpkin soup, looking for "the one". I have heard that the secret to pumpkin soup is to use squash, not pumpkin. Well, our Malaucene soup was pumpkin!
