World Watercress Soup Championships 2012!

This Sunday in Alresford, Hampshire, UK is the first ever World Watercress Soup Championships – providing the perfect opportunity for my first competitive culinary challenge. Alresford is a very small, picturesque market town that is the very epicentre of watercress production in the UK and every May hosts a Watercress Festival featuring… you may be able to guess… all things watercress related!

My first attempt is currently on the stove, and I’m certainly not going to reveal my recipe until after the big event on Sunday (I don’t want anyone to steal it!) but I may post a photo later if batch one is worth it. 🙂

Here’s a sneaky peak of batch one – and it tasted pretty good – I’m not going to give away any other info just yet!!
