THIS WEEK'S RECIPE
Vichyssoise (/ˌvɪʃiˈswɑːz/US dict: vish·ē·swäz′; French pronunciation: [vi.ʃi.swaz]) - a thick soup made of puréed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock. It is traditionally served cold but can be eaten hot.
Here are a few recipes to get you started - the beauty of Vichyssoisse is that it's flexible. Mix up a batch, stick it in the fridge and serve cold with a salad and a glass of white wine. Great hot weather lunch or dinner. Bon Appetit!
