Wow! Chilled soups. It's been a while and not sure what the trend is (not really caring though either:look:)

Chilled cucumber dill with coastal white shrimp was once on a menu, I've always liked Vichyssoise and Gazpacho is made almost weekly at home. Tried some of the fruit soups like strawberry served with a warm Grand Marnier muffin on the side and even had a fruit stew (seasonal Melon, Cherries, strawberries, couple other things with a rum laced simple syrup and fresh mint all served in a walnut raisin boule on the menu as well. None sold very well even on the hottest days of summer and that's in and around the SE Coast (Atlanta too).:blush:

But if I had to pick one it'd be Gazpacho.

Personally I believe them to be like serving aspic. Once a very popular thing but now it's just not on the palette.:D

Cold soup has never really been my thing. I generally like the hot variations of classic cold soups better.

But in keeping with your topic, I'd have to go with some of the fruit soups, probably a melon soup. However, you might not really consider that soup. I know I think it's a stretch of the definition to call those soup.

I'd agree with the Gazpacho.

Chilled, Grilled Tomato Soup from the book Thrill of the Grill. I love that soup, and it's all the more enjoyable because it's seasonal when using fresh, vine ripened tomatoes.

There's a prosciutto and melon soup that I've made a couple of times that was pretty good as well.

Oh yeah! The curried pea? That is a good one. There's also a carrot-ginger with cardamom creme fraiche I tried a while back that worked too. Took allot of carrots though and became too much work for what we sold.

I must say, purple is a very unappetising colour. I can't imagine any cold soup tastes any good at all.

In any case, I rather like chicken sweet corn soup.

Simple to make. Also, spicy hot and sour soup is really delicious.

I'm going with purple for my favourites...

1. Hungarian Sour-Cherry Soup - this is an unusual savoury dish but awesome on a hot day
2. Borscht - especially if boosted with a little wasabi
3. Salmorejo
4. Lemon, Ginger, Carrot and Cardamom Soup
5. Zuppa Fredda alla Menta - Italian Chilled Mint Soup
