Note from the Diva
Holiday Bisque

Christmas Eve and New Year's morning are two holidays without a culinary tradition. Usually, either meal is a last-minute scramble for busy cooks to make up dishes from whatever is in the refrigerator. Glenn Alos, executive chef of Kona Village Resort, has a better idea. He suggests a do-ahead chilled Papaya and Coconut Bisque that can serve as one luscious supper or brunch dish as well
as for dessert, or appetizer at any other time of the year.
His bisque is like a Scandinavian fruit soup with extra substance from papayas. To serve as a main dish or appetizer, substitute mineral water for the 7-UP or Sprite and a pint of half-and-half for the ice cream.

Note: Unless you have an extra large food processor, it's best to mix the liquid and the cream in a blender first and then use a food processor to combine with the papaya pulp.
- If you can't get fresh papayas at the local supermarket try Fresh From Hawaii, (808) 922-5077. The company delivers to the Mainland

List of Ingredients
8 RIPE Papayas
4 ounces 7-up, Sprite or soda water
1 pint heavy cream
1/2 cup Cocoribe or coconut liqueur
2 cups Hagen-Daz ice cream or half-and-half

Preparation
Slice a little of the rind from the side of four papayas as a base so they can stand upright. Cut off about 1/2 inch of the top and save. Seed the papayas and scoop out enough of the meat to make a place for a serving of soup, don't cut through the base. Seed and scoop out the meat from the other four papayas. Place in the work bowl of a food processor. Add the 7-UP, Sprite (or sparkling mineral water) heavy cream, coconut liqueur and ice cream or half and half.

Process until smooth. Pour into a bowl, cover - and refrigerate. Wrap the four papaya ' bowls" and tops in plastic wrap and refrigerate. To serve, pour a portion of soup into each papaya half. Use the 1/2-inch cut earlier as a lid. Serve garnished with mint leaves or small orchids
