This is the 3rd recipe I have entered for a chilled soup discovered on our recent cruise & it was found in 1 of the 2 cookbooks I purchased while on-board ship. This is from *Carnival Creations* by Cyrus Marfatia, another Exac Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines. Chilled soups esp appeal to me for their make-ahead & serve w/ease benefit that allows you to put your time & effort into other courses of an elegant dinner party. The cookbook intro said "This chilled soup is an exquisite prelude for your featured entree, so expect nothing short of magnificent." The taste had already won my favor & the easy-fix prep was just a bonus. The recipe required a modification as an ingredient was not in the Zaar data base, so pls read my NOTE #2 following the prep steps. (Times were not given, have been estimated & 10 min was allowed for ingredient prep) *Enjoy* !
