Cold Soup is ideal to have on hand in summer heat. You can make this soup up, store it in the fridge and then take it out and finish it off for any occasion. When houseguests first arrive, they’re inevitably exhausted from their trip and a bit peck-ish. It’s nice to greet them with a glass this rich, creamy soup and perhaps a tomato sandwich made with farm stand tomatoes on thin-sliced white bread. This simple welcome will bide them over until dinner. You can make up a glorious gazpacho, truly fresh tomato soup or you can put a little French accent on the proceedings with this recipe for Vichyssoise, a completely American invention.
