“I was cleaning out the old recipe drawer this weekend and came across this gem dated 1978... It is an adaptation of an original from a friend of mine who was "Executive Chef " for a major hotel chain... This is a strong soup that should be served with hearty country style bread and lots of ale. A generous splash of dry sherry while in the finishing stages adds a special touch.”
