All souped up
Fraser Reid's soup bags promise encouraging hand to people who want to cook fresh
A presence on the emerging Perth Road food and drink scene for more than five years, Fraser’s Fruit and Veg has a new success story: soups.
Owner Fraser Reid’s soup bags, each containing the ingredients for a pot of imaginative soup, have proved so popular that the forwardthinking greengrocer has put pen to paper with a book celebrating his 52 favourite recipes. Titled Fraser’s Seasonal Soups, it is published by Dundee’s own illustrated cookbook specialists Kitchen Press.
Reid explains the ethos behind it: ‘I wanted to encourage people to cook with good, fresh produce, with a view that they might then go on and use those skills and ingredients to learn to make other things. The soup was really about showing people what they could do.’
