I'm a huge fan of shiitake mushrooms and I loved this soup! I made this as written, but couldn't bring myself to use 1/4 pound of butter, so I only used 3 tbsp total. It was still rich and creamy. The fresh chives are a wonderful garnish. I also splashed a little rice vinegar on top of mine when I put the soup in the bowl. Yummy! Thanx for sharing!
