I love making this soup. Not because it’s easy, although it isn’t hard. And not because it’s quick, because it takes about an hour and a half from start to stop. The reason I love it is that my wife loves it, and I love making her happy.
The first time I made them I was really only trying to impress Tracey and I didn’t take into account my kids would devour them eagerly as well, so unfortunately I ended up eating baked beans for dinner. Is there a greater measure than this?
These are not for everyone. Judging by the reactions of the members of this family only one in seven people find the idea of eating lambs brains tenable. And even amongst us who love to eat them, I think there’s a real drop off in numbers of those who are prepared to make the dish.
If you’re looking for something simple but awesome to set in front of the telly or for pre-BBQ nibbles, you really can’t go past this sort of thing. It can all be prepared ahead of time (by which I mean ‘bought’) and takes only minutes to assemble.
