    Take a classic sopa de ajo to another level by adding some slowly braised pork cheeks, sour cream and crispy serrano ham. The shredded pork cheeks work well with the earthy flavour of the sopa de ajo, whilst the silky sour cream provides freshness and creaminess against the salty ham. This is a full-on winter soup with no calorie target, comfort food at its best. Enjoy with a chilled glass of mencia red wine and some crusty sourdough bread.
