    Ambrosia for Guen's Note:

    One night I was watching Emeril and he made a garlic soup. I made the garlic soup and enjoyed it, but decided I'd rather have something else in it rather than having to put bread in the soup to make it feel like it had substance. So I took what I knew of the garlic soup and I took what I knew of leek soup and a smashed them together.

      This soup is amazing. Every ingredient really shines, and they all meld together into something that's so much greater than the sum of its parts. I followed the directions exactly, except that I pureed about half the soup to get a creamier texture, and finished it with a little rosemary and creme fraiche I had around. We loved it.
