I was comparing it to the berry soup I had on our cruise five years ago. I had won a contest and we did a Caribbean cruise on a very elegant ship and the food was out of this world. One night I ordered the berry soup and to my joy, it was the most delicious and refreshing dish I had ever had in my life. But it was not like Victoria’s soup, unfortunately. It was not thick and it certainly did not have balsamic vinegar in it. So I started to obsess and think and remember…what did it taste like exactly?
I did not get it down perfectly but this Cold Berry Soup is still pretty darn fantastic. It is a lot lighter than the one I had on the cruise ship and as a result I had to add a lot of the strawberry syrup to boost the flavour which gave it a crazy pink colour! So lovely though. Food can bring such joy.
It looks so pretty! 🙂
Mmmm, this looks delish. I just bought some strawberries but have no other berries at the moment. Will have to try it some other time.
Fruit soup is standard Finnish fare. I’ll look for some recipes.
