Just bring me the wine list, then some strychnine.

I'd like the barley soup recipe, too, arty. Sounds interesting.

Oysters Rockefeller with a glass of Champagne to start please.

Then I'd like a nicely marbled, grain-fed, T-bone steak and prawns with Bearnaise sauce and a baked potato with sour cream, accompanied by a half-litre, or the full bottle, of 1997 Black Sage Merlot from Sumac Ridge Wineries.

For dessert I'll have to say, Anne, your choice of Creme Brulee is tops! It can only be improved by sipping a glass of Harvey's Bristol Cream sherry along with it.

Now that the Brunoboy is a spiritual creature, I get more steak! But what do I do with the bone? If I'm condemned, will they search my pockets? I could sneak it to him.

How about Turkish spicy lentil soup, or to call it its proper name, Bride Soup? It is one of our fave soups, and we recently acquired a recipe for it.

25g butter; 1 onion finely chopped; 75g red lentils; 2 tbsp Tomato Puree; 1 teaspoon red chilli paste; 1.1 litre water; 75g fine bulgar wheat; salt; 2 tsp cayenne pepper; 2 tsp dried mint.

Heat the butter in a large saucepan, add the onions and fry until golden brown.

Add the lentils, tom pur, chilli paste, water, bulgar and salt, bring to the boil mixing well then reduce heat and cook for about 20 minutes.

Add the cayenne pepper and dried mint, mix well and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes, or until the lentils and bulgar are soft. Serve immediately.

[It is usually served with lemon juice in Turkish cafes, i.e you add your own if desired]

My husband has tried out the abocve recipe and I have to say it was delicious!!

I also have to say that we bought several packets of spicy lentil soup when we were in Turkey this June and bought them back with us!! A similar brand to Knorr.

Thanks Anne I might try this sometime. Barley soup, get a grip, Linda, these things can be found on the internet. Anyone interested in a recipe for Latvian Grey Peas? No I thought not, but they are very similar to chip-shop Mushy Peas.
