Pumpkin Soup with Cep Mushrooms

Pumpkin Soup with Cep Mushrooms

This is deliciously rich and smooth soup with a colour of deep vibrant gold. Author of Delicious Soups Belinda Williams had a similar dish at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant as an amuse bouche, and that is where the idea for this recipe in her book came from. The silky nature of the cep works so well with the smooth soup. Truffle oil finishes this off and elevates it from the everyday to something really special – but this is at your discretion.
