Chilled soups are refreshing, typically healthy and light which plays well in the summer heat. Yet people are generally skittish of chilled soups. Chef Geoff and Rocky look to break that mindset with a variety of examples starting with the classic Vichyssoise (Cold leek and potato soup), we bring in Randy Smith from Ergo knives at ergochef.com who prepares an Avocado Cilantro puree using a little tequila to get it up on it’s feet. That’s right, cold soup with a touch of fire water. Nice play.
Not to be outdone, the Stripped Down Kitchen boys come through with a Red Plum Soup, Chilled cantaloupe with Warm Crab and a Peach ‘n Ginger soup. Is it a soup or is it a tea? Tune in to find out, and like the Facebook page to get the recipes and more.
