Cold soup for summer cocktail party?

Bionda, I just did my test batch before my party on the 18th, and it came out beautifully. Question: How long will the soup keep? Would you make it a couple of days before the party or just the day before? Please advise, and many thanks!

Thanks, C Hamster! The list of allergies is long, alas. Almonds, almost all seafood (except lobster, fish, and shrimp), so boring!

Beautiful cheese plate, grilled asparagus wrapped in pancetta, marinated shrimp, devilled eggs, smoked trout mousse on endive leaves and cuke slices. Thanks for your interest!!!

Cold soup for summer cocktail party?

I'm hosting a party for 15 to 20 people, and I'd like to serve a cold soup. I've got sets of those shot glasses with the little spoons. Any suggestions? I'm allergic to melon, avocado, mango, and raspberries, and so I can't use them. Anyone have a stand-out cucumber soup recipe? I like a very smooth texture.

Help! Fix salty homemade mayonnaise

I just made a homemade mayonnaise that turned out way too salty even though I followed the recipe exactly. How to fix?

I love this lower calorie soy mayonnaise-like product. Fiesta Farms used to carry it, and it no longer does. Whole Foods doesn't have it. Has anyone seen it around lately? Would love to hear. Thanks!

Thanks a lot, all, but I won't know where I'm staying until about a week before leaving. We're not into big fancy meals. I'll check back in with this board when I know where I'm staying in about a month! Thanks a million!

Nice bistro or Italian resto in Vaughan, elder friendly!

An elderly friend of mine is coming in from NYC for a family event, and I'm going to take her to dinner near her hotel in Vaughn the night before. She uses a walker so a resto with few or no stairs and a bathroom on the main floor would be best. Good food and pleasant ambiance of course! Many thanks!

Pet-friendly Key West?

I am going to Key West in early April and bringing my puppy. I'd like to find take-out so I can sit with her on a bench somewhere and watch the world go by. Any suggestions? Are there dog-friendly outdoor patios? My dog is well behaved.

Does anyone know where to find this amazing product? I'm looking for the large-size tube of pure tomato paste. The packaging is distinctive: the cap is red with daisy petals. Not interested in the many Italian varieties. It's THOMY or bust! Anyone know where to find it in Toronto?
