Do I go for a traditional classic like Mulligatawney, or a frou-frou interloper like Puy lentils and bacon?

Of those, I'd go for the Mulligatawney. You're probably too British for clam chowder, right?

Don't you believe it. I'm a fan. Chowder has a long history in Britain, where oysters used to be the food of the poor.

I've never been partial to chicken soups, which rules out Cock-a-leekie.

And yet I like mulligatawney. Like Shaft, I'm a complicated guy.

Les Hailles original French Onion.

The market may be gone, but the original soup remains.

Vive la France! Vive l'oignions!

I saw (but haven't had) pumpkin and chilli was the seasonal soup in the supermarket.

That sounds great, I might have to make it.

I love thai hot and sour soup.

lentil and bacon soup is the best winter soup ever! My Mum used to spoend all day brewing it in a lethal and malevolent pressure cooker. red lentils tho.

Pumpkin soup is wonderful, but it may be an acquired taste.

Cream of Chicken for me.

Tuna and Sweetcorn is nice with lots of fresh chillis.

Mpost definitely. I don't even recognise other "soups" as soup.

Tom Yum or Tom Ka Gai...other soups cannot compete.

Although Scotch Broth is a classic...

It's a childhood thing, same as Norks. Glowworm and I both love the stuff.

Real, Hungarian Bográcsgulyás with csipetke all the trimmings.

Or, alternatively, proper Hungarian hen soup with parsley root and carrots.

Or (likewise Hungarian) Halászlé, three-river-fish soup.

Same but I used to have cheese and pickle sandwiches with it.

I also used to jazz up the lentil soup with some chilli. Woo.

Actually in terms of "traditional" soups, 'tis true. THe Hungarians have it sown up.
