Thank you for your kind words. The soup is ok cold, no big deal ...but when served warm w/ cold whipping cream it's the best. The best is when folks self serve fondue style w/ sterno accompanied on side w/ the whipped cream ( on ice).

I LOVE your cream garnish! Lively, spirited and delicious! Beautiful. On the first snowy evening of the season, this make a lovely celebration. I bet you could also eat this cold.
