Soup of the week: Green soup with crispy lemongrass tofu

Eat Canberra

I rarely buy magazines anymore especially food magazines. I think there’s a combination of reasons for this. Having access to the internet gives me endless sources of information and recipes, I don’t want to waste paper and have a stack of magazines I have to throw out (I did that for years), my bookshelf of cookbooks need to be used and I like to be creative.

So last night I put in my order for a double espresso shot instead of my usual latte.
