    1. Bring beef marrow bones and water to the boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, adding more water, as necessary, to maintain the 2 litres level. Remove and discard the bones, then strain the stock into a fresh pot and return to the hob.
    2. Stir in the carrots, potatoes, cabbage, onions, parsley, allspice berries, bay leaf, star anise, salt and pepper. Cook until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and return soup to the boil. Serve individual bowls of soup topped with double cream.
