This is a wonderful recipe! It has become a family & guest favorite. We serve it in normal soup bowls and offer normal serving sizes - yummy. We normally don't bother with the CF or the cream (unless we have it on hand) a little bit of milk works to make it "creamy". Enjoy.
Really good! I used espresso cups- although the creme kinda melted and spread across the top because of how small the cups were, so I didn't really get to do any fancy design:( Still tasted great! Lots of compliments!
This was a nice soup to serve with a multi-course meal as it was light yet creamy. I did have to triple puree it to get the creamy consistency I wanted. I warmed the creme fraiche mixture and dotted and swirled it into the soup for a fancier presentation. The creme fraiche mellowed the celery flavor a bit and the soup is very flavorful without any cream added. A nice vegetarian soup. Pairs well with a white burgundy or sauvignion blanc.
This has proved to be a favourite with many of our guests. A complete surprise to our guests to be served a "Sip of Soup" at last year's Christmas party as suggested in punch glasses. This year I served this soup before a prime rib dinner. A wonderful delicate flavour and not heavy. Ensure your soup bowls are warmed as any soup is more enjoyable when nice and hot.
