Do You Like Cold Soups?

Cold Soups: Love Them or Hate Them?

I'm planning a bridal shower for one of my best girlfriends. She's agreed to let me handle all of the details and wants to be surprised by the invite and food. Although I haven't figured out the menu yet, it's at the back of my mind. It's going to be a buffet-style vegetarian lunch. One of the things I'm considering serving is cold soup in miniature glasses. I'm hesitant because although I enjoy cold soups, like gazpacho, I'm not sure if the majority of my guests will like them. That's why I'm asking you! When the weather is hot, are you fond of cold soups?

I love love love cold soup, but the times that I've served it for for guests I've gotten very mixed reactions. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend serving it to a group of "non-foodies."

It just seems like it shouldn't be called soup, give it a different name. Cold soups just bother me for some reason. Bring on the hot soup, I say!

I love soups in general. And in Summer I'm fond of cold soups. Love gazpacho, and one of cucumber,of melon and yogurt, I also made one of tomatoes and watermelon which is so fresh and tasty. And of course, my favourite, Salmorejo

I don't hate cold soup but I don't really like it either. I personally wouldn't serve it unless I knew the majority of guests liked it.

I voted Hate. I just feel like soup should be hot. :P I'm weirded out by cold soup. I won't eat food that's typically served warm straight out of the fridge either.

I made a fresh berry chilled soup a few years ago that was fantastic. And I could eat gazpacho by the gallon if it is made with fresh in-season tomatoes.

i hate gazpacho but i did have a cold cucumber soup and it was good and also i tried a watermelon soup that was great here is a carrot soup that is raw maybe you could try that Curried Carrot Soup serves 2 ~ $1.10 per serving ingredients 4 carrots, chopped ($.50) 1 avocado, coarsely chopped ($1.19) 1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped ($.05) 1/4 medium onion ($.05) 1 clove garlic, pressed 1 teaspoon curry powder ($.10) 1 1/2 cup water, as needed for blending salt and pepper. In a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth and creamy. I think i am going to add ginger (i love it)
