The Cream Soup is one of the most elegant pieces of the American 2056 line. It has an outward flowing shape, with a graceful handle placed on each side. The actual bowl diameter is approximately 5″, and it stands about 2¼” high. While this piece is beautiful enough to be served solo, it is often seen paired with the Cream Soup Plate.
When the two pieces are used together, they make for a beautiful presentation. There are two variations of the Cream Soup Plate, and both versions aid in keeping the Cream Soup stationary. The center of the plates will either have a raised retainer ring, or a slight depression in which to hold the Cream Soup.
Ina Garten has published a book full of delicious recipes for comfort food – including a Creamy Tomato Bisque, which is perfect to serve in these bowls. Her recipe book is called “Modern Comfort Food: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook“. Bright and colorful soups look so beautiful in these dishes, deliciously enhanced by the clear crystal that holds them.
