Potato Leek Soup

This soup may be served hot or very cold.

Makes 6 cups

Mince the white part of:
3 medium-sized leeks
1 medium-sized onion
Stir and sauté them for 3 minutes in:
2 tablespoons butter
Peel, slice very fine and add:
4 medium potatoes
4 cups clarified chicken stock.

Simmer the vegetables, covered, for 15 minutes or until tender. Put them through a very fine sieve, food mill or blender (I like the blender for quick action).

1 to 2 cups cream
(¼ teaspoon mace)
Salt and white pepper
Chopped watercress or chives for decoration

You can make this soup during the summer with fresh vegetables and freeze it — works well and tastes good during winter.

Introducing Emile Henry's new Mini Stewpots

Emile Henry Mini StewpotsI fell in love with these new stewpots the moment I saw them. I already have plans to have some friends over for dinner and begin the meal with individual bowls of soup served up in these charming little pots!

These mini stewpots are also perfect for serving small portions of gratin, potato purée and lentils. For pudding or to make an individual soufflé — these mini stewpots are a guaranteed success!
