  • Soak dried mushrooms in warm water until softened, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Drain mushrooms, reserving soaking liquid. Rinse mushrooms and squeeze dry. Chop coarsely, discarding any tough stems. Strain soaking liquid through coffee fileter and reserve.
  • Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until soft, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add dried and fresh mushrooms, salt and nutmeg. Cook until almost most of liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and stir 3 minutes. Whisk in stock and 2-1/2 cups mushrooms soakig liquid. Bring to boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat and boil gently until soup thickens slightly, skimming surface occasionally, 40 minutes.
  • Whisk 1/2 cup cream into soup. Simmer 5 minutes; degrease if necessary. If desired, thin soup with any remaining mushroom soaking liquid and more cream. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
