When we were on the Destiny a few years back, my sister bought the cookbook just for the West Indian Pumpkin soup. When she saw the servings were for 100 people, she asked our waiter to ask the chef to cut down the recipe. The chef did it with no problem!

Hate to bug you, but my wife and daughter both loved the pasta they had last week. I don't know the official name, but it was a Bowtie Chicken Pasta dish. Any chance you have something like that in your books? It would earn me great brownie points!!

Thanks!

First of all PineappleGal, thanks for doing this for everyone here.
I have a slightly different question...
I'm trying to compile a vegetarian option menu for Cruise Critic(because the question has come up quite a few times here recently).
I have figured out most of the info, except for a few items.
So, here's the items, and I don't need the recipes, just if they have meat (which means beef, fowl, seafood of some kind) or especially the soups (if they have beef, chicken, or fish broth) as they can always be tricky for a vegetarian.

Crema Di Funghi Selvatica
Gazpacho Andalouse
Black Bean Soup
Chilled Cucumber Soup
Cream of Sun-Ripened Tomatoes with a Touch of Gin
Chilled Cream of Lyches
Corn Chowder Maryland
Asparagus Vichyssoise
Cream of Garden-Fresh Broccoli and Wisconsin Cheddar
Chilled Zucchini Soup
American Navy Bean Soup
Mango Cream

Ragout of Wild Mushrooms
Southwestern-Style Egg Roll
Penne Tossed in a Tomato-Cream Sauce with Vodka and Caviar
Penne Siciliana
Fettuccine Tossed in a Mushroom Cream


Thanks in advance for all of the vegetarian Cruise Critic members and/or family and friends.

Is it OK if I reply with Yes (you can use it )or No (Don't use this)? I went to Culinary School and I can tell you if there is any trace of meat/seafood/etc.
Crema Di Funghi Selvatica - Unsure
Gazpacho Andalouse- Yes
Black Bean Soup; I believe there is Chicken Stock in there *
Chilled Cucumber Soup ; I believe there is Chicken Stock in there*
Cream of Sun-Ripened Tomatoes with a Touch of Gin: No
Chilled Cream of Lyches - Yes
Corn Chowder Maryland -NO; Chicken stock in it*
Asparagus Vichyssoise- NO; Chicken Stock in it*
Cream of Garden-Fresh Broccoli and Wisconsin Cheddar; No; Chicken stock*
Chilled Zucchini Soup - I believe there is Chicken Stock*
American Navy Bean Soup- No; Chicken stock in it. (made it in school)
Mango Cream- Yes; Dessert soups don't have stock in them

Ragout of Wild Mushrooms- Yes
Southwestern-Style Egg Roll- Yes; I believe Vegetables are in the whole thing
Penne Tossed in a Tomato-Cream Sauce with Vodka and Caviar - isn't Caviar something you can't use.
Penne Siciliana- Yes
Fettuccine Tossed in a Mushroom Cream- Yes you can use

* Don't you just hate it that they make soups that sound Veg. but have chicken stock or meat products in there.* I hope this helps; let me know on any other recipes. *

What a kind person you must be! My absolute favorite Carnival cocktail is "Kiss On The Lips" Would you happen to have that recipe?
I will be on the Victory in August but would love to try to recreate it before then.

Hi Pineapple Girl!
Thank you so much for doing this! As I didn't want to buy the whole book for just one recipe...
Anyhow I was wondering if you perhaps had the recipe for the Red Potato Salad that they serve at the Grill Area up on deck?
Thanks again~ Jh

Most of those are ones that many of us have looked for over the years... and while many will post a copycat, we have rarely seen the Carnival recipe. I am waiting for them to come out with some new cookbooks!! As much as I love mine, I want some new ones! The bitter and blanc has been one of the biggest requests on CC... there have been some copycats posted, I've never tried them... you may want to do a search and see what you think.

I knew that might happen. Anyhow, I have found a few copycat recipes online that I will be merging & adapting to try and replicate the Red Potato Salad I found on board, I will let you all know how things go.
