I recently flew to and from the USA on Virgin Australia (my airline of choice most of the time) and of course they have food by the lovely and talented Luke Mangan, and I have to say, not too shabby as far as airline food goes. On my return journey I upgraded (given that my huge man child was not travelling with me and I could feel guiltless in doing so!) and I had the most delicious soup in business class that I thought I could easily recreate with apologies to Luke...if he thinks it’s not up to scratch! (But I think it is...and I am hoping you do too.)

Voila...Spanish Tomato Soup, cue the Grilled Cheese sandwich (not served on the Virgin flight...but just a heads up there Luke, would have been all sorts of awesome as an accompaniment.)
