    A standard "starter" at the swanky Grant Grill in the San Diego U. S. Grant Hotel for many years was Mock Turtle Soup. Tux adorned waiters always suggested a dollup of "cherry wine" (sherry) to top the soup. This is my rendition.

      I am a fairly experienced cook. I know how to make a roux but that step is unclear. I used a food processor to chop just about everything, even the eggs (pulsed). I also used a stick blender to smooth out the texture. It is a little spicy, and I like heat. Future cooks may want to add 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper at a time. I am not wild about the flavor, however my husband likes it.
