Serving the dishes in this menu is so much fun. The soup may look intimidating at first glance. When fresh vegetables are used in this soup, it takes more time and effort than using frozen. If frozen broccoli and squash are used, this recipe becomes fairly simple and the taste is still great! The cooks each pour a ladle of soup from opposite sides of the bowl to create a great presentation. Guests can swirl the sour cream with an utensil to create a design if they wish. The salmon is also fun to serve. Since all the flavors in this dish, have been locked into the parchment paper, the smells as you open this package are delightful. The the Creamy Brandied Cherries is a relatively light dessert, which makes this menu very appropriate for moderate eaters. However, the addition of rice, bread, and a favorite cookie to go with the cherries, can make this a meal that will satisfy even those with more substantial appetites.
