Hi, my name is Paul Brilleman.
Food has always been front and centre for me – an unerring friend and a constant passion. From as far back as I can remember, mealtimes have always been the highlight of my day. My holidays would centre not around the sights and sounds of my foreign surroundings, but around the smells and the tastes of new and exciting cuisines.
I began to recreate many authentic dishes from around the world and, over time, I began to share these dishes over social media with other foodies.
A long journey, however, always begins with the simplest of first steps. This classic tomato soup has always been a comforting but tasty dish to brighten up my day. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
