I've made it and it's delicious! That is my favorite cookbook of the dozens I own and I cook from it year round. I'm so happy you posted about it a couple years ago or I don't think I ever would have found it.

It is beautiful as well as yummy I see. I like the umbrella reflected in the spoon too.


mmm, this looks great. Last week I had a glut of cucumbers, so made a cold cream of cucumber soup. This reminds me of the yogurt and cucumber and mint, with garlic, dish my mother makes, a Middle Eastern recipe.

Now I know what to do with all those cucumbers a friend brought over yesterday. Looks great.


I agree with Lisa - the picture (complete with umbrella reflection) looks fantastic. I don't think I could get my food critics to eat it, but it looks super tasty. I think, though, that I'd prefer your presentation to the one in the original.

Altoon — I think this is one of those recipes that you can eat as a salad, a dip, a chunky soup or a drinkable soup. Just variations on the proportions and method.

Jenny — My food critic likes chunky soups so Ill probably never make the drinkable version. I also loved that little reflection of the umbrella in the spoon. Mark took the photo with his phone while we were eating!

Erin — Do you have Delia Smiths summer cookbook or Judith Olneys? I like both of them as well. Youll have to find them used.
