    My friends were talking about this soup served in a local restaurant but I have yet to find a recipe even close.  Any suggestions?

    The Spring Creek Ranch has it on their menu. (found on Web)

    Chilled cucumber and pomegranate soup garnished with agrumato tangerine oil and saffron.

    I am sure if you call them ( 1-800-443-6139 ) that they would accommadate you with a recipe.

    just a thought.

    Yes, that is where I saw it, just wondered what went into it?  I am being taught by the exec chef right now but didn't want to ask.  He gets enough questions from the students.

    April,

    I just got off the phone with the general manager and he said that the Chef at Spring Creek , Jason Miller,  will hopefully stop by Cheftalk and post the recipe.

    From what I understand its fairly simple (the basic 4 ingredients that were mentionned- 1/2 & 1/2 then the tang. oil and saffron ) , he also said that it makes for a good palate cleanser.

    Hopefully Chef Jason will stop by and clarify this for us.

    Petals.

    That was really nice of you to call.  I almost asked in class but I try not to be "that" student.  Chef Mitchell is very down to earth and kind, heck he teaches a class of 13 twice a week.  At my job we have a signature pumpkin soup that I am not allowed to reveal the recipe or if asked I say general items but also that the amounts are done by eye and taste.  

    Thanks for asking them to have Chef Jason stop in and visit us here on Chef Talk.
