Chilled Beet Soup

This year we grew several varieties of beets in colors ranging from white, to peach-blushed gold, to the deepest ruby red. This chilled soup is a refreshing summer lunch or light supper. I like to serve this with spiced tortilla chips. It is simple to make and very beautiful.

The True Chanterelle

Two days ago, I was handed a brown paper bag full of beautiful, deep golden mushrooms. We are having a particularly abundant year for wild mushrooms.
