How to make it
- Place the stock and herbs (rosemary through thyme) into a 4-quart stock pot. Bring to a boil and cover. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Strain the stock to remove the herbs and return the stock to the pot.
- In a small saucepan, place all but 2 of the peeled garlic cloves and just cover with water. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
- Puree the garlic and cooking water until smooth. Add to the stockpot with the white wine and bring to a simmer.
- Melt the butter in a small pan and add the flour to make a roux.
- Whisk the roux into the hot stock until smooth and the soup begins to thicken slightly. Crush the two reserved cloves of garlic into the pot and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add the cream, chives, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Parmesan as a garnish if you desire.
