Personal Notes:
This used to be a feature menu item at the old Devonshire Hotel. It no longer exists - but was a part of my youth.

This is a most delicious and unusual soup; rich, creamy, easy to whip up and perfect for Fall. My mother used to make it when I was growing up and it was always a favourite of mine. Iím not sure where the name originated but in doing a little research I found that the recipe dates back to the 1930ís and was hugely popular in hotels such as The Plaza in NY, all the way to The Devonshire Hotel in British Columbia. Although the original recipe was quite different in that the two main ingredients were peas and turtles, I think my motherís version must be superior. Perhaps she took the liberty of changing it as I had two pet turtles as child and never was a fan of peas.
