Re: Leek and Potato Soup

I think on a cold winters day, or if you are feeling low, nothing quite touches the mark like a steaming hot bowl of tasty soup.
Thanks for the recipe Arrian, I will endeavour to make it soon, sounds moreish.

Re: Leek and Potato Soup

We make a this almost every week, well to be truthful without the eggs and cream and about 1/2 the milk and only liquidize about half to leave it s bit chunky. Its wonderful with fresh bread.
