Vichyssoise Potato Leek Soup


Vichyssoise Potato Leek Soup

Served warm or cold, potato leek soup (Vichyssoise) is one of the most delicious soups around. Not all recipes are made with the chicken stock, but my family feels it imbues the soup with a richness that simply cannot be achieved with water.


  • More often than not, Vichyssoise is served cold.  To do so, simply chill the soup for about 4 hours before garnishing and serving.
