    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 a 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.
