Turtle Soup

This story begins in Hardin County, Kentucky near Fort Knox and it ends eating delicious Turtle Soup. I was taught to fish by my grandparents. Many a time we loaded up the Buick with our cane poles, bobbers and bait to head to fishing ponds on my Aunt’s farm property. For an eight year old these trips were marvelous adventures.


Vichyssoise is a classic French soup. Or is it? The true origin, French or American is a legitimate question. In 1917 Creme Vichyssoise Glacee made its debut on the menu of Chef Louis Diat at the New York Ritz Carlton Hotel.
