The Carnival Cook Book DOES NOT have all the recipes served as they advertise. I purchased this book specifically for the Cucumber and Zuchinni soup recipes and neither are in the book.

Can I go on line and buy a Carnival Cook Book.

I could really kick myself for not buying one on my first cruise a year or so ago I thought at the time I would never use it. Now am wishing I had it.

Thanks for your help

Thanks! Now I don't have to wait until Feb to have this again - although it probably still won't taste the same. Something about being on a cruise ship just changes EVERYTHING!

I would love the recipe for their tomato soup. I think it's actually called "Vine Ripened Cream of Tomato with a Touch of Gin". They had two cookbooks for sale last November on the Conquest, but the recipe was in neither.

I know what you mean, it's like you never can recreate all that hard work those people go through to put all that food together. I hope the Souffle suits you well.

I have an older recipe book from Carnival. I've got the newer one too. In the older book the Strawberry Bisque recipe does not include red wine. I believe it uses whipping cream too.

If you haven't found the recipe for one of your favorites, write a letter to Carnival for the recipe.

I bought the book sold in 2001. It did not include the recipe for the chilled orange soup (tasted like melted orange sherbet) I enjoyed at lunch one day. I wrote a letter to Carnival to request the recipe. They sent it but in their conversion to a smaller batch size, they miscalculated a couple of the ingredients. I checked with them again and finally got the right recipe. I now know why it tasted like melted orange sherbet - it had orange sherbet. The recipe is Chilled Orange Sory.

If you are interested, I'll post it. (The recipe is at home. I'm checking the boards during lunch at work.)

  • 1-1/2" fresh ginger root, sliced- 1/8" thick

In a blender, blend all ingredients except the ginger. Add the ginger slices and chill the soup several hours. Remove the ginger slices. Serve the soup garnish with mint sprigs.

GOOD LUCK!!
