A baby shower for a Darling Daughter is imminent.
The restaurant hosting the shower has offered a menu that includes a sublime Tomato Basil soup. Problem is, the base for this soup is derived from chicken stock and therefore is off limits for a number of Vegans and a few Vegeterians who will attend.
Dear wife spoke to the chef owner of the restaurant asking him to substitute vegetable stock in place of chicken stock for this assembly. He agreed to do that with a caveat: "The soup won't be MY Tomato Basil."
Seeking advice from Chowhounds on taste variation that will/may occur if chef moves ahead to grant this request. Thanks all.
