It's interesting to run the ingredients as a search--
'cold almond soup grapes recipe' turns up
Ajo Blanco (Chilled Garlic and Almond Soup with Grapes)
There's an almond onion soup in Maxime de la Falaise's _Seven Centuries
of English Cooking.
It's mentioned highly in the Florilegium.
Is there a pre-1600 recipe?
