This could be the most exciting thread ever.

Peoples attitude to soup bugs me. There is nothing better than a good vegetable or minestrone soup - simple but delicious. In fact I love all the classics and they are often the highlight of a restaurant visit.

But just recently I've noticed a trend for restaurants to serve ridiculous soups, just to be different. Last night I was out with the missus and the soup of the day was orange and cabbage. It tasted as bad as it sounds.

I'm thinking of starting a SAVE OUR SOUP campaign.

What is your favourite soup?

Never had orange and cabbage. It doesn't sound very palatable. Leek and Potato and Tomato soup are my favourites. I also like hot and sour soup if I have a Chinese.

I have never found any soup in the supermarket that tastes remotely like the soup they serve in restaurants or pubs.

Can anyone recommend a tinned soup?

The waitrose soups in the tubs are real good. Other than that, no.

I do try to cook from fresh as it is more healthier than from a tin or pre-packed meals. Plus I do like cooking for some reason, although i am definitely no masterchef

quite good, to be fair, going to gym at least 5 days a week and spending over 2 hoursat a time, weights, sit ups, crouches, cross trainer etc etc. definitely redefinig the fat into muscle. Weekends don't help, though, as out most Friday evenings until about 3am and end up with a Turkish pizza or shoarma and same on Saturdays for the footie and then after-parties. But stay in on Sundays nowadays, with the girlriend and thats when we prapre the food for the week ahead - true teamwork:D

Yep, just need my business to start bring the money in, otherwise I will need to look for another job. But apart from that all is good in the Barnes-Ewing household.

Lobster bisque, by Baxters. Takes some getting used to, but its ok, and Asparagus aint too bad either. Tomato has to be the all-time best though.

Natasha - never buy tinned soup - this is where you are going wrong.

Buy fresh soups from the supermarket instead. Try the Glorious soup range.

SOUP 6a00d8345250f069e2013482c9a856970c-550wi

They used to be tied in with Marco Pierre White, the poncy chef. The Sunny Thai Chicken is absolutely incredible.

In general, my favourite soups are mushroom, leek and potato, or if I am going for a Chinese, chicken and sweetcorn.

I've never shopped at - or even been in - a Waitrose in my life, so I have no idea if their stuff is worth the inflated prices.

I'm surprised Daubhill, where you probably live, is in their delivery footprint.

So you have never shopped in the mini-food hall in Boots Manchester or even the Waitrose to go in Manchester?



I even shop there when in town - you do pay for what you get, their food is probably the best around.

I used to work in Manchester and occasionally would go in the Boots on Cross Street, opposite the Corn Exchange, and get the meal deal for my lunch, which ws very good value, it was a decent sandwich or a wrap, a flapjack and a 500ml drink for £2.99. If you're telling me Waitrose supply the food fair enough but I never noticed any Waitrose branding anywhere in the store or on the packaging.

I don't believe I've ever noticed a Waitrose to go in Manchester, though that M&S Simply Food on the corner of Piccadilly Gardens and Moseley Street is awesome, but who wants to spend £5-6 a day on lunch? You go to work to make money, not spend it.

Don't know how long but the Boots food is now a Waitrose concession and is Waitrose branded.

The Waitrose to go is on Bridge Street - in fact it replaces the old newsagents which used to occupy the space in the office block that had Manchester Building Society (now been a bit polished up and now claims to be part of the Spinningfields development).
