    I love potato & leek soup and it is so nice to see cream for a change again & not all the healthier options. Sometimes you just can not substitute it! Thanx

    This is a favorite soup from my days at Rollande et Pierre. They served tiny cups on a bed of ice with minced chives on top. I remember it well, because I had to mince the chives. LOL Still it is delicious hot or cold and it is a guilty pleasure to eat a BIG bowl, just because I can. Great recipe, just as it should be. very yummy.
