English Pea Soup

Brasserie 19

HoustonPress
The soup is a vibrant emerald green, so put away all notions or wretched memories of pea soup as foul, putrid stuff with the color and consistency of algae. This is what pea soup should be: sweetly vegetal and tasting of the garden, of fresh clippings, of springtime on a miserably hot summer day. It was lightly chilled -- neither too cold nor an undesirable room temperature (room temp in Houston in summer is usually a bad thing) -- and the peas' simple sweetness was further complemented by an island of jumbo lump crab meat in the middle of the bowl.
