A SWEET TEMPERED

HONEY, CARROT & CORIANDER SOUP

(BEES NOT INCLUDED!)

Native to Afghanistan, carrots were known to the Ancient Romans as an aphrodisiac. Caligula, the mad Emperor best known for appointing his horse to consul, once invited the senators to a banquet at which only dishes containing carrots were served. Sadly no evidence of misbehaviour has been discovered!
