It is best to eat avocados when it is very ripe and uncooked. They are delicious when halved and stoned, served with an olive oil vinaigrette dressing. Avocados can also be pureed raw with chicken stock and cream, into a chilled summer soup. Their buttery richness works wonderfully well as a spread on toast and sandwiches, and in partnership with sharp fruits, such as tamarillo. By the way, avocados were once called 'poor man's butter'.
