My Favourite chef in Greece, Christoforos Peskias shared this recipe with us in one of his creative cooking classes.
A cool soup, that is chilled to perfection…lemon juice and honey battle each other …as for the almonds they give the perfect texture to the cool soup.
I love serving this cool soup in my favourite Yria Ceramics celadon bowls from Paros.
