Heat bacon in pan. When fat has run, add butter; melt. Add onions; cook gently 5-6 minutes, until tender and golden brown. Add tomatoes, tomato puree, lemon rind, stock, carrot, white pepper, salt, pepper, sugar and herbs; bring to a boil. Simmer 20 minutes or until tomatoes are tender. Put through a processor or blend in a blender. Adjust seasoning. Serve hot; sprinkle with parsley and basil and croutons.
