A few weeks ago my family and I had a wonderful lunch at the Ayres Tea Room. There is a beautiful and scrumptious soup there called the "chicken velvet soup" and boy is it delicious!
My husband purchased the recipe book for me while we were in the gift shop. I wanted to share the recipe for this beautiful dish. It has been a classic and favorite for 110 years!
