6 Very Very Tasty Soups in Lane Cove

Yes, baby it is starting to get cold outside.  When the weather turns a bit chilly, it’s always comforting to have some soup for lunch.  In the Cove set herself a secret mission to taste as many soups as she could in Lane Cove.  Many were tasted, but the six below made the cut as the ones that tickled my tastebuds (or in some cases Mr ITC’s tastebuds).  In no particular order, here are my six favourite soups:

Bern the Chef

It’s what I think is proper old fashioned chicken soup.
Made by simmering a whole free range chicken in a large pot along with diced onion, celery & carrot. Fresh bay leaves & one clove ( the spice, not garlic) then finished with barley or dried pulses, plenty of fresh parsley, and the finely chopped chicken.
We cook 2 batches a week and freeze in 1 litre containers so it transports well.
Perfect as a freezer back up, work from home lunch, and Sunday night easy dinner.
Folks order as part of the Granny Cooks Thursday Meal Delivery, or pick up a soup directly from the kitchen – just email [email protected] to order, and we have safe pick up & pay systems in place.
Contact Bernadette at Bern the Chef [email protected] see our listing on IN THE COVE, or check to see the next batch simmering on Instagram & Facebook.
See you in the Slurp!

  1. Impressed that you managed to write a whole blog about soup, without mentioning Seinfeld! ? Loving the look of that pumpkin sweet potato soup at Fink
