Jane Shapton's cold puréed soup of cantaloupe and peaches, topped with raspberries, captures the flavors of the season. She serves it for brunch or dessert, in hollowed-out melon halves. A splash of white Zinfandel underscores the fruity flavors of the soup, but you can use just peach nectar if you prefer. Prep time: about 15 minutes, plus at least 30 minutes to chill.
