    Lorac's Note:

    My favorite dinner party soup! Cooking the dried mushrooms for 4 hours produces an intense flavor that cannot be achieved with fresh mushrooms. The onions and butter (don't skimp) transform the broth into a rich, enchanting and elegant first course soup. Don't be concerned with the cooking time, this is a simple and very easy to make soup. Prep time does not include soaking overnight.

      Hello! Your recipe is so far the best of these which i have found (and as I am Polish I know the real taste of mushroom soup:) But it will take less time if you soak the mushrooms in the warm boiled water (3 hours should be enough) then I think that 4 hours of cooking is not necessary; if you want a real mushroom flavour just make the soup one day in advance (by the way it works with most of the polish soups;))But the traditional recipe says that 1-2 hours of cooking is enough. This soup is the best with home made noodles. Bon apetit:) PS. Personally i prefer chicken stock, it makes the taste plus "subtil"
