Chilled English Pea SoupA Recipe from The Bernards Inn This is an amazingly easy spring soup to prepare. One of the beauties of the soup is that by using frozen peas it helps cool the soup down quickly. Frozen peas are also harvested at their peak insuring a sweet pea, not a starchy one. The mint enhances the flavors we crave as the days become longer and warmer. The soup can also be garnished with chilled shrimp or lobster or sliced garden radish. Enjoy! 1 Medium Onion, Thinly Sliced 1 Leek, White Portion Only, Thinly Sliced 1 Garlic Clove, Thinly Sliced 1 Sprig of Thyme 1 Bay Leaf 1 TBSP...

 Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, engagement or even a wedding, toasting the occasion with a special bottle of wine or champagne can add a thoughtful, memorable touch. Several years ago, I asked our own Terri Baldwin, sommelier and wine director, to research and help me find a special 1983 Taittinger Champagne that we bought and held for a number of years here at the Inn. Why that vintage? It was the birth year of my son and I knew that someday I would want to have a special bottle of Champagne to open and enjoy with him on his wedding day. That milestone is just around the corner....
