More About This Recipe

  • In Peru, weddings are large and sophisticated affairs, and one of the most impressive things about them is never-ending spread of food. Everything is thoroughly and deliciously prepared, and there's always a smorgasbord of options to choose from. What I enjoy most at these functions is that the food usually comes in small, snackable portions, which allows everyone to try everything. It's almost like a tasting menu, just in smaller quantities.Shot glasses, for example, have become very popular as a means of serving food at weddings. Wedding decorations are always on the classy side, and they provide an elegant presentation that transforms dishes into something refined, perfect to serve at such a special event. This vichyssoise (leek and potato cream) is a great example.

Three 3-Minute Chilled Soups

I fell in love on my honeymoon. With a cold soup. Yes, I was already head over heels with a tall engineering student, but a chilled Hungarian sour cherry soup, enjoyed on a shady Budapest courtyard with the aforementioned tall student, also captured my heart.

That memorable lunch left an impression on me – on my palate – and I’ve never turned down a cold soup since.

Cold Soup. I know, it’s almost a contradiction. Isn’t soup supposed to be a comforting dish, warming us down to our very toes? Simmered on a back burner on a chilly autumn day? If you’re not familiar with the summer version of soup, it certainly can sound off-putting, but it is actually a marvelously refreshing way to enjoy summer’s produce.

Here’s what you may not know about cold soups:

  • They are quick & easy to make. Got a blender? Good. You’ll have cold soup in minutes.
  • They pack a wallop of flavor. Think ripe, seasonal fruit scooped up with a spoon.
  • They provide valuable opportunities to get the kids to eat their vegetables. Who is to know what may be blended up in a soup?
  • They’re delicious. Absolutely, positively.

Three Chilled Soup Recipes

Here are three of my favorite recipes for chilled soups. They are a little more exciting than traditional cold soups like gazpacho and vichyssoise, but they are no more complicated to make. In fact, I think they are even simpler.

Try them and I guarantee you’ll fall in love with at least one recipe – but more likely all three….

Chilled Yellow Tomato Soup

This quick tomato soup requires just a bowl and a blender and can be kept in the fridge for no-fuss light lunches all week long. No stove to clean and minimal dishes? I’ll take that.


  • 6 large, ripe yellow tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • salt & pepper
  1. Quarter tomatoes and toss in a bowl with sugar and vinegar. Cover and marinade 1-3 hours.
  2. Puree in a blender and pass through a fine sieve. Season well with salt and pepper. Serve chilled with your choice of garnish.

Entertaining Tip: Chill a tray of shot glasses. Pour soup into glasses and serve to guests to sip or ‘shoot’ for a refreshing summer appetizer.

Garnish Options:

  • mini-cucumbers
  • chives, chopped
  • cherry tomatoes
  • croutons
  • diced avocado
  • crumbled feta

Note: This soup can keep up to three days in the fridge. Be sure to shake, whisk or blend well before serving as it will separate when it sits.

Quick Chilled Cantaloupe Soup with Lime & Basil

My children’s personal favorite! Many thanks to Lydia of Soup Chick for the inspiration.

  • 3 cups cubed melon
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp ground (powdered) ginger
  • Zest of one lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp agave nectar or honey (optional)
  • 2-3 mint leaves (optional, but delicious)
  • 2-3 basil leaves
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp water if needed to thin the soup to desired consistency

Combine all ingredients except water in a blender, and puree until smooth. Adjust consistency with water, if needed. Serve chilled.

Note: This soup can keep up to three days in the fridge. Be sure to shake, whisk or blend well before serving as it will separate when it sits.

Chilled Cucumber Soup with Mint & Yogurt

  • 1 small English cucumber, washed & seeded
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives (or green onion)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, washed and chopped (or cilantro)
  • 1 cup organic milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • salt and pepper
  • yogurt
  • sliced cucumber
  • chives
  1. In a food processor or blender, puree cucumber and fresh herbs with a splash of the milk.
  2. Add remainder of milk and sour cream and blend until fairly smooth.
  3. Stir in yogurt season with salt and pepper.
  4. Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Make Ahead: Soup may keep, well covered, for up to 2 days.
Cold soup (which was once deemed only for expensive tasting menus at chi-chi restaurants and scoffed at by macho men) is making a comeback!

Yay or Nay? Would you be willing to give chilled soup a try?

A special vichyssoise for my muses

I’m officially back to blogging after a 6 month break, and I must thank 5 amazing ladies who, through their kindness and their friendship have given me the necessary motivation to do so. These muses are my mom, my great bloggers and friends Mimi and Ashley and a friend named Jil (Mimi’s neighbor in Oklahoma) whom I’ve never even met!

Yes, blogging, when you are a hopeless perfectionist, can become a huge pain in the butt. And so one stops posting and loses the daily habit to do so. We move on to other things… But then, people tell you that reading your posts was something that enhanced the quality of their lives and then you catch yourself rethinking the whole bloody thing. I seriously doubt that my posts make a huge difference in people’s lives, but hey, if I can make anyone feel even a tiny bit better about their day, it is very much worth reevaluating things and make blogging part of my routine again. This is why I started this blog 6 or 7 years ago. It was to share whatever I found inspiring about France, food and life in general in the hope that it would bring joy to kindred souls all over the world. Your vibe attracts your tribe they say…

Anyhow. Here is how each one of these lovely ladies (I call them my muses! It makes me feel more like Picasso or some other fancy artist. Ha Ha Ha) have inspired me to post again:

First there’s my mom of course. She is now 86 and I believe she’s let down her garde over the past few years. What I mean is that she no longer seems to worry about appearances, focused instead on what truly matters in life: her loved ones’ happiness (whatever their shortcomings may be) and her own… I recently took mom with me to Corsica for her grandson’s wedding (pictures below). She doesn’t get to travel much anymore as dad has become increasingly weak in his legs. So this was a real treat for her. It was a short flight from Bordeaux to Ajaccio, but it reminded us of a lovely memory: us in 1977 on the exact same flight. Forty years later, I got bigger and fatter and she got smaller and wiser. The flight attendant was kind enough to take a picture of us and I stuck it on top of one that had been taken on the 1977 flight… I love this little collage… One of the reasons I haven’t blogged much is that she had to have one of a hips replaced a few months back and I had to take care of her and my dad. It was my pleasure to do it, but it took a lot of my time. But even as she was there, lying in her bed, utterly vulnerable (with bone cancer to make everything even more fun for everyone involved) she never lost her positive attitude. One morning, as I was serving her breakfast and she was taking her pills, she said (and she was being quite serious): “I wonder how all those old folks manage to take so many different pills every day.” Yes, she’s 86! Her incredible disposition reminds me every day that enjoying life and sharing that joy with others (even people I don’t know) should continue to be a priority in my life. It is also, as my blogger friends know, great therapy!

Then there are my lovely readers and friends like Mimi, Ashley or Jil. These guys just know how to make me feel good about my art and the choices I make every day. Mimi is so supportive and would almost make me believe that I am a talented photographer. Ashley makes sure I never run out of BBQ sauce (impossible to find in France) because she knows that nothing makes my soul sing like a rack of ribs. And then there’s Jil… I’ve never even met Jil. All I know is that she likes to read my little blog posts and that it makes her light inside shine a little brighter. And I can feel that light shine even better from here, thousands of miles away, amplified, warm… important. Here’s a picture of Mimi and Jil. Can you feel the goodness and the love just by looking at it? I sure can!

Last but not least there is the odd reader like Sadie (read her message below) who reads my post on vichyssoise and shares it with a cook lost somewhere in the far North who’d just received a box of leeks by error and had no idea what to do with them. Just the idea that your words or your photos can lift someone’s spirit or help them even in the most modest of ways is so so powerful to me. The idea that they may be living in the woods of Siberia or right down the street from me… That’s powerful too!

So here is the recipe that saved the day for some cook somewhere in the world and then, just for fun, some photos from that wedding I took mom to…

If potato leek soup has never been anything new, the French Chef of The Ritz-Carlton New York (the original one), woke up one day and decided he would serve it cold. His name was Louis Diat and the year was 1917. Louis was born near the town of Vichy in France. Soup is a feminine word in French “UNE soupe” and since ladies who live in Vichy are called Vichyssoises… there you go :0)

Louis is known to have said: “Without garlic, I wouldn’t care to live”. Personally I would add butter to the list :0)

I must say I hadn’t had Vichyssoise since my childhood, but I recently found the recipe in one of my grandma’s boxes and decided to give it a go. Maybe it would bring back some of those beloved memories… It totally did!

  • The recipe is cheap as dirt.
  • It is ridiculously easy to make.
  • You can make it in advance of a lunch or dinner party and keep it in the fridge for two to three days.
  • Last but not least, very few people know of this dish or ever make it. This makes for a great surprise and conversation piece for your next dinner party.

– 11oz of leeks – that’s about two regular size leeks – (mostly the white part)
– 18oz of potatoes (2 medium potatoes)
– 1 tablespoon of butter
– 1 smallish onion
– 4 cups of chicken broth or stock
– 1 cup of milk
– 3oz of crème fraîche (heavy cream)
– Chopped chives for decoration
– Salt, black pepper, nutmeg

Make it stand out.

It all begins with an idea. Maybe you want to launch a business. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

how to joint a chicken into breast and legs, I urge you to try this technique it will save you money to learn this essential skill.

Combine starter and all other ingredients in a bowl, mix to a sticky dough (do not try to knead). Cover and prove 4 hours, every 2 hours turn the dough. On a floured surface form the dough into a smooth ball.

Prepare banaton or bowl and leave over night in the fridge to retard the dough, next day prove again another 4-5 hours, do the poke test, poke your finger in and if the dough stays dented and refills just a little the dough is ready to bake, if it springs back quickly it has not finished proving.

Heat Dutch oven in a hot oven 240c - 460f for at least 30 minutes before the bread has proved, turn the dough onto some parchment, dust with flour and score with a sharp blade (the ear). Sit very carefully into dutch oven, spray with water and sit the lid on and place into the oven.

Bake 25 minutes then remove the lid and bake another 25 minutes at 220c - 430f, sit on a cooling rack and leave it alone until its has cooled to room temp.

Lemon Drop Jello Shots

These Lemon Drop Jello Shots were a huge success at our football tailgate this weekend. Everyone was so surprised at the presentation and how great they tasted. So, as promised here's the info for how to make these fun little treats.

Lemon Drop Jello Shots
- 8 large lemons
- 2 packages lemon Jello (3 oz each)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup citrus vodka
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup ice cold water

Cut the lemons in half lengthwise. Squeeze the lemon juice out into a separate container and set aside. Use a spoon to scoop out all of the insides and pulp. You can use a paring knife to help separate the inside, but be sure not to cut through the lemon peel. Once you have them all completely juiced and cleaned out, place each of the halves into a muffin tin, with the open sides up.

Prepare the Jello mixture by mixing 1 cup of boiling water with two packages of lemon Jello. Stir until the Jello has completely disolved. Then, add the 1 cup citrus vodka, 1/2 cup of strained lemon juice that you got from the lemons, and 1/2 cup ice water. Stir until cooled.

Pour the Jello mixture into each lemon half so that they are completely full. Carefully move the muffin tin to the fridge and chill for at least 4 hours, until hardened.

Once the Jello is firm, and you're ready to serve, cut each half into three slices. Turn the lemon halves over on a cutting board and then make each slice in one fluid motion using a very sharp, warm, non-serrated knife. Share with friends and enjoy!!

This recipe can also be modified to use with any other citrus fruit like oranges or limes.

Spanish style tomato gazpacho recipe

Why aren’t cold soups more of a thing? On a hot day, a cold bowl of soup can be a singular pleasure: refreshing, cooling, and yet still satisfying, a bowl of cold soup has the power to revitalize and rejuvenate even the most sunburned of vacation goers. But aside from the odd vichyssoise, cold soup seems to be a rarity across most of the world.

A rarity in most of the world, maybe, but in the lands of Andalusia in the south of Spain, cold soup is a lifestyle. Seven hundred years of North African rule gave a lot to Andalusia, but on a hot summer’s day, one thing in particular stands out: gazpacho. There are several variants across Andalusia, each subtly different, but tomato gazpacho is the classic to which all others should be compared.

Fresh, juicy tomatoes, red onion, bell peppers, and cucumbers combine in this silky raw soup that comes together in a flash. Soak stale bread in water with some vinegar and add it to a blender with diced tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, and cucumber. Blend vigorously until smooth—if it’s not smooth enough, pass the soup through a strainer to remove some of the pieces. Thanks to the bread and olive oil, this soup is meant to be silky-smooth. After blending, adjust for salt, pepper, and garlic and then allow the gazpacho to chill completely in the refrigerator. Not only will this make it more refreshing, but the resting time allows the bread to continue to absorb the flavors. Served with some crusty bread, this soup is the perfect thing after a day spent in the hot sun.
