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.
