I have a saying: "What you put into a soup or stock is what you get out of it," so use the freshest and best ingredients you can. Enjoy!

    I should like to know where I can find fresh locally grown asparagus and small yellow squash in Melbourne in the middle of winter.

    I think I will be making a few substitutions in the vegetables.
