    swissms's Note:

    Bon Appetit, December 2004. Cashews give this soup a nutty sweetness while the Armagnac adds depth. Cognac may be substituted for the Armagnac.

      A real winner. I was looking for something different to go with a prime rib dinner and this was a great pick. I used a compound butter (basil pesto) instead of plain butter and I used cognac. This was very good.
