“Four entire bulbs of garlic, roasted to sweetness, and incorporated in a creamy soup. You can stop at the puree stage, and refrigerate for up to one day before adding the cream and lemon juice.” - by Marian

"I had first tried this soup at the Vermont Culinary School restaurant a few years ago in Burlington and have since been hunting high and low looking for this recipe. I left out the leeks and just saut..." See moreeed sliced Spanish white onions instead and it gave it a sweeter taste. I did not use whipped cream but just heavy table cream instead and it came out fine. This is great winter soup and the lemon wedge and croutons are a perfect addition. Also, a few sprinkles of grated Asiago or parmasan cheese on top is also tasty toppings. Goes well with a very dry, white wine. "
"This soup was great...the second day. Next time I make this soup, I'll definitely finish the soup and serve it the next day. The flavor was so much better the second day. I also cut the leeks down ..." See moreto one but left the rest of the recipe the same. Give yourself lots of time with this soup. It takes a while to make. A perfect soup to prepare a day ahead."
"A good soup, but way too many leeks. I made a 2nd time and used 1 large leek as opposed to 4. Came out much better. I also added some oven roasted red potatoes with rosemary and garlic to the recip..." See moree. Came out excellent. Overall this is a solid recipe that gives you a great base to work with."
