    1. Heat butter and olive oil in a saucepan. Cook onions and garlic on low heat for 5 minutes.
    2. Add the tomatoes with liquid, water, salt, pepper, chilli flakes, celery seeds, oregano and sugar. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes.
    3. Puree the soup with a hand blender and adjust seasoning if necessary.
    4. Pour soup into bowls. Put the cream into a freezer bag and snip off a corner. Use the bag to paint a spiral of cream on each bowl of soup.
    5. With a knife, draw lines from the centre of the spiral to the edge to make the spider web effect.
