Weekends in a French Kitchen: Chilled Spring Pea Soup

Weekends in a French Kitchen (click to read about the project: here) launched last week.  And if you're game, I'm including affiliate links to the cookbooks at the bottom of the post.

Special thanks to the project organizers: Alice of A Mama, Baby and Sharpei in the Kitchen, Christy of Confessions of a Culinary Diva, Tammy of Telling Stories from Chez Nous, and Emily of Blue Bungalow. What a fun, fun project they have designed. Join us.

This week's selection from Daniel Boulud and Dorie Greenspan's cookbook - Café Boulud Cookbook - is Chilled Spring Pea Soup. You'll find this recipe on page 112 of the Café Boulud Cookbook...we will not be posting the actual recipes on our blogs.

My Thoughts...
I used more herbs and skipped the cream and bacon on top. It was a warm summer evening and I carted the soup out to the backyard. The Precise Kitchen Elf was loving it! Look at this glee. We will definitely be making this again soon.


  1. I am so tempted to join you Cam but I am afraid I will get overwhelmed if I join any more clubs.

    1. Jump in Wendy! You can just cook when you feel up to it, no minimum participation requirement here :) and they have been really tasty recipes SOOOO hard to say no to!

  2. All right, another winner! Cute photo of the elf. I really liked it, my husband wouldn't even try it...go figure, his loss. :-) All those herbs sound wonderful.

  3. I love how much he loved it! ;)

  4. Your soup looks delicious! Is that kale chopped up on top? That would pair well for sure. I love the photos of your cute kitchen elf. I wish my boys would have had such glee while eating this! He's a keeper for sure :)

  5. I can see that your kitchen elf loved this soup. Unfortunately it was not for me, but now I know.
