Servings: 4 to 6
Sweet, earthy, and aromatic with an amazingly smooth texture, this soup makes an elegant first course. You can purée and refrigerate it a couple of days ahead; add the cream and seasonings after gently reheating it.

This is an excellent soup. I will make at least once each fall, if not twice. Delicious and easy.
Too much butter for my taste. I did't even add the heavy cream! Too sweet too; 1 blended pear will do it next time. I'll make it again cause it yielded 3 L! good for freezing for a singel gourmet lady. NOTE: if you don't have fennel by hand, use a star anise in the broth and take it out before blending. ;-)
I had a very hard time finding pear juice for this one, so I sweet-talked the juice bar at my grocery store into making some for me out of pears I bought at the same grocery store. The soup is awesome! I shared a second batch with a friend and months later she will still casually mention how good the "pear soup" was and how she wouldn't mind if I made some more.
