Ann's Tips and Tricks

You can make the soup ahead of time up to the end of step 1 and freeze it in portions. When you want to eat it, leave it to defrost in the fridge before adding the ricotta etc.

If you can find it, you can drizzle the soup with Saba, which is thick syrupy version of pungently sweet balsamic vinegar, and pass on making the reduction.
