“Sickie Soup” or so says Chef Bangerter

I was in at Luma today talking to Jason Bangerter about our upcoming panel at the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference in April. It should be a lively discussion and with Alison Fryer of the Cookbook Store moderating you know we’ll be kept on our toes.

Sadly I was pretty sniffly when I arrived at Luma, but Ben kept my tea hot and honey close at hand, and when I asked if I could get a soup after our meeting, Jason brought this out to see if it would make me feel better, and cut through the hell that being sick does on ones taste buds.

Apple Curry soup with apple gastrique or “sickie soup” as @chefbangerter called it . And I’m pretty sure those are some of his trademark Crispy Tasty Bits down the centre of the soup with some baby greens (ruby swiss chard if I’m not mistaken)

Perfect for lunch for this sickie! Thanks!

Sounds yummy and soothing and warming... and it looks great, too!

 @Andrea Toole Starting to, thanks for asking. I'm now curled up at my mommy's house, so I'm being looked after right.

 @PatAnderson It was all of those things.  Of course I'm still wondering how rich and flavourful it would have been to a palate and nose that were uncongested. But the apple gastrique cut right through and refreshed,  and I'd never really considered curry when sick before, but it really did push through so I actually got some flavour.  I hate being sick and what it does to my palate!
