Soups on!!

When I was unable to locate in the Carnival Cookbook a favorite dish served in the dining room of the Sensation, I approached my waiter, Fortunado, and asked his help in obtaining this delicious recipe. The next evening he had the recipe ready and waiting for me as I arrived for dinner.
