Not a Vichyssoise but a good hearty welcoming soup which I have been making since I was at the Aspinall Arms, Great Mitton, Lancashire.
I have served this soup to Sarah Fergusson, The Duchess of York, Roger Moore, Michael Caine and many other famous people however the person who stands out in my memories is Egon Ronay when he asked for a second bowl when we were at the Great Tree Hotel, Chagford, Devon.
battytartt ,This is the best pot and leek soup I have made so far didn't put garlic in only because I could not be bothered to peel and crush ... Very tasty
ellymommabearuk ,I'm a soup virgin, but this was so simple! I blended a little then pushed the soup through a sieve, it was nice thick and smooth! I'm not to keen on chunky soups
fotron ,I altered the recipe slightly to increase the amount. Had to thin it with boiled water. Also used trio of cracked pepper as nothing beats the taste. This recipe is very tasty and not too hard to make. I used a stab mixer to purée the soup and it was enjoyed by the whole family even my two year old girl had seconds.
