[Retro Recipe Monday] Vichysoisse

I'm going to do some classics for a bit that you may conceivably eat so you can be psyched for Mad Men's premiere.  All Classic Retro Recipe Monday Recipes come from The Food Network unless otherwise stated.



  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups leeks, sliced and washed
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cup heavy cream


In large pot melt butter. Add leeks and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add water and bring to a simmer. Cook until vegetables are tender. Place 3/4 of soup into a blender and puree, return to pot and stir in cream. Serve hot or cold

You know I read this in the feed when you posted it. I'd always wondered what this was. It sounds so good.
