Chris Zinn from Your Local Deli & Market www.yourlocaldeli.com – Mushroom Soup
Mushroom Soup – it’s their house speciality and served all year long
The secret to good soup is to use fresh ingredients and fresh mushrooms are readily available
Portabella and Crimini mushrooms – Shamrock Farms is their local source www.facebook.com/organicshamrock/timeline
Saute down and add a little Sherry
Add leeks and allow them to cook down – rinse them well
Add homemade chicken stock, heavy cream and half and half
Butter, Garlic, Secret set of spices and white pepper
The mushrooms will cook down but you want to make sure you have mushroom pieces all the way through your soup.
