Loaves and Fishes is located in Bridgehampton New York. I never shopped in it due to it being was to expensive.

While working at the Rogers Memorial Library Anna Pump ( owner of Loaves and Fishes) did a cooking program, where she also sold her cookbook.

This recipe stated that the soup could be served hot or cold.

At the time the  cookbook was published this soup was the most popular sold at the store.
