Wonderful! The flavors were complex but very complimentary! I can't describe how gourmet tasting this was, but it was just what I was looking for. A very velvety smooth soup that leaves you inspired to pursue other culinary endeavors. ***Low-fat tip: Use fat-free half and half in place of the cream. The velvety goodness will still be there!***
