Chanterelle

In planning dinner for a special occassion for my husband and his bosses, I was going thru a very old recipee box trying to find something different and creative. I came across this for a fruit soup. I must have copied this years ago and in a rush, as I did not write down who it is by or where I copied this from.
I think it will be wonderful for Summer. If anyone has any idea where this came please let me know. I have no idea if it is a dessert, side or starter. I think depending on what else is served it could be used for any of these...
