      Delicious! I did not have cream, and used 2 year aged cheddar instead of the brie. It came out really tasty, thank you so much for a great recipe.

      I served this for Christmas Day Lunch since we have mainly vegetarian guests in our extended family, and it was WONDERFUL... my nephew liked it very much and at age 16 it was the *first* time he had ever eaten soup! 5 stars for leaving SiL speechless as she was certain he wouldn't try it LOL ! I confess that I have a form of dyslexia that forces me to read "1 clove of garlic" as "add 3 cloves of garlic" and after adding the basil leaves, the other handful I had looked lonely so I added them too... I doubled the recipe and the splash of white wine was a really decent sized puddle, um... an entire half bottle to be precise, but it was Christmas day and my potatoes were huge and there was brie in a massive chunk from the cheese shop and... well it all turned out very very nicely indeed. Fussy guests raved... nephew ate soup for the first time in his life, and LIKED it and MiL said I could make it again... any time, for her... in a manner that was more instruction than request. I omitted the milk becuase with the larger quantity of wine it was a little thin, but after adding the brie and basil it thickened up nicely when I used the stick blender. Thanks Evie for a recipe of restaurant quality taste that is easy to make as well. Top marks and a definiate thumbs up from our family and friends. Thanks!
