A couple of times recently our work canteen menu has featured 'Barnet soup'. At first I thought that was simply soup with hair in it - but it turns out that Barnet soup is a type of soup made with beetroot, potatoes and parsnips. The hair is optional.
The only real information I could find about Barnet soup (apart from a couple of recipes) was on the blog Eating for One, Cooking for Two. It says the soup was named by London chef Oliver Rowe "after the north London borough from which the ingredients came".
