  • 4 cucumbers
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 pint chicken stock
  • 1 pint yoghurt
  • salt and pepper


Peel, seed, and thinly slice the cucumbers. Add the other ingredients and chill for several hours. Serve iced, with finely chopped chives.



  • Yoghurt is easy, and much more economical if you make it at home.
  • Mix 2 tablespoons of commercial yoghurt (plain) with a cup of milk in a small bowl and leave overnight in a warm place. The pilot light of a gas stove is an ideal spot. In the morning, you will have yoghurt. The process can be repeated indefinitely.
