Dear SOS: On our anniversary we had dinner at Flavor del Mar in San Diego County. I had an amazing butternut squash soup. I asked our waiter what the spices were. He said the chef did not give out information and recipes. I am wondering whether you can get me the recipe. I have tried various ones and cannot duplicate the flavors. My mouth waters just thinking about the soup.
Dear Lynn: A perfect fall dish, roasted butternut squash is combined with onion and garlic and finished with rich cream in this soup, a touch of fragrant nutmeg and cinnamon rounding out the flavors. Flavor del Mar was happy to share its recipe with us, which we’ve adapted below.
