This lightly-creamed soup is truly special. It works as comfort food for a casual soup & salad dinner or a starter course for an elegant dinner party. On our recent trip to the US, my SIL gave me the recipe. She said her mother had copied it from a cookbook & did not recall the source. I wish I knew who to acknowledge & thank for this classy taste sensation. I hope you try this & enjoy it as we did. (PLS READ NOTES shown as steps 7, 8 & 9 of prep)... *Edited To Add* This recipe was revised to include the addition of garlic & Old Bay Seasoning.
