Nice gilding.


Nice shot of the soup! Didn't you once say that it's hard to take a good picture of soup? I want some right now.


Thanks to you both. mzn-I took some advice from Melissa of Traveler's Lunchbox, who mentioned that she photographs soups cold. For some reason this seems to help me a lot. I heat it up to eat afterwards!


I'm heavy into spinach and asparagus! These are beautiful. Can't wait to par-take. Thanks


Oh, my! This looks ultra-delicious. I can't decide which I want more, the soup with the custard or the salad.


Oh, my. I want that soup with custard, and I want it now. And the photo is lovely, Lindy; perhaps photographing soup cold changes its reflectivity?

I have been eating pounds of "lilies" ungilded recently - just tossing with olive oil and roasting for a few minutes in a very hot oven, then finishing with black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. I keep thinking I'll tire of that simple preparation, but it hasn't happened yet.

I have been thinking recently about pickling a few pints of asparagus. I've never eaten pickled asparagus, but can't imagine that I wouldn't like it.


Tanna and Julie-the salad, at least, is easy!
Kimberly-I saw some really beautiful tall, slim canning jars from Germany, which got me thinking of pickles, too! Does anyone have a suggested recipe? I wonder if something with a touch of heat would be good?


The soup is gorgeous, but the salad is making my mouth water. Adapting from Judy Rogers is never a bad idea.


Both recipes sound delicious, Lindy, but that soup is a particular knock-out. Well done!

Happy anniversary to you and Toast, by the way! :-)


I remember the custards from that Gourmet issue -- your photo is just as enticing as theirs! I STILL want to make them -- thanks for the reminder!

Baking Soda

First reaction? Asparagus soup, love it!
Second? Asparagus soup, green, shouldn't it be white?
Third: oh yes ::slaps forehead:: the States
Fourth or maybe first: Gorgeous soup, even more gorgeous picture.
I would like to make that, with custards, wow, this is a showstopper!
