Recipe: Turmeric and ginger Kabocha squash soup (by a lake in Washington)

One of my favourite home comforts is soup. Growing up in the mountains in France, soup is a staple for most households; the snow falling outside as you warm your cheeks and and fill your nostril with the full smell of a courgette soup makes me want to cozy up with a blanket and a good book.

Woke up this morning absolutely DREAMING of the beignets and chicory Café au Lait from Café du Monde in New Orleans.
