This soup makes a great meal on a cold winter night. Just add a salad and some hot crusty french bread. This also makes a first course for dinner. I like to make this when I have left over baked chicken. If using as a first course or appetizer servings would be for 4. If using as a main dish servings would be for 2

Delicious and simple, I doubled the recipe and used half olive oil and half butter instead of all that butter. and I used all 2% milk instead of any cream and it turned out great, will be using this recipe as a base to all cream soups thanks a million

I own and operate a western restaurant in Tianjin China. I needed a new cream soup and decided to try this, of course I needed to adjust measurements to make for fifty but kept to the recipe as posted. I will be making another fifty servings today, just three days after the first batch, I think that says it all.

Great taste and easier then I thought to make. I did add carrot to the cerery, onion mix and I agree with others that the cayenne give it a great added flavor
