Lydia Shire. At quick mention, images of her distinctive red hair, plethora of restaurants and celebrity following come to mind. Take for example, Scampo, located at The Liberty Hotel
. Now envision a sampling of not-so-traditional white pumpkin soup—a vegetarian dish made from a flavor-filled puree of onions, leeks, apple, garlic, white pumpkin, sherry, cream, butter, salt and pepper, topped with crème fraiche, mini marshmallows, fried elephant garlic chips, and fried sage and finished with drops of truffle oil. These are the special touches of love that go into Shire’s restaurants.
