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.

  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.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
