A cool and tangy serving of gazpacho remains a warm-weather staple, but look around restaurants and you'll find a bounty of chilled soups that highlight the flavors of summer produce.

With a little attention to detail and the right ingredients, these soups can also be a staple of your home kitchen.

At L Wine Lounge in Sacramento, Calif., dip a spoon into chef Ame Harrington's chilled carrot coconut soup and you'll find spicy and sweet flavors, plus a pleasing thickness from a russet potato, and it's mmm-m-m mmm-m-m good in a summer sort of way.
