Adelaide's independent news

Red soup is my spin on a traditional German dessert, Rote Grütze, that I ate when travelling around Germany many years ago. I’m not sure a German traditionalist would approve of my so-easy-it’s-barely-a-recipe riff, so think of this as a homage rather than an authentic rendition. On a side note, red is my favourite colour – it brings me luck and it always puts a smile on my face. May this soup do both for you, too.
