    This is THE best garlic soup EVER. It's from my much used & loved 'Feast of Soups' cookbook by Jacqueline Heriteau.

      The crouton was EXCELLENT soaked in the soup, however we found the soup itself to be a bit bland and broth-like. I would have preferred more of a creamy soup. We served it aside some salad for a nice vegetarian meal this evening. THanks!

      A note, you have actually written "wing soup" here. To say garlic soup you would write "soupe à l'ail." No matter what the name, it sounds nice.

      Awesome! It smelled so good that I started making a second batch before the first was even through cooking so that there would be enough! I thought it would be a little "weird" with all the garlic but it was soooooo good! I do think that the salt could be cut down to 1/2 tablespoon. I added about 1/3 cup of Kefir to mask the salt and that worked out really good for me. Also I didn't know when to put the thyme and sage in because they aren't listed in the directions, so I just threw the fresh stuff into the blender with the egg yolks. Thanks for posting. I'm going to go have myself another bowl... despite it be midnight! Ciao, Bella
