This has been my very favoritist soup since I was just a tadpole. They always give you a tiny cup in a restaurant so I learned to make it when I could reach the stove,I think I posted my recipe. Anyhow, thanks for the post. Joymariemystic_river1 in Bradenton loved it
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 ...morenotyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
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! Thanxtinadc in Cape Town loved it
