Vichyssoise is refreshing soup
This is a great summer soup served cold, and even butter winter soup served hot! Although it holds a french title, but actually was created originally in New York, may be by a French chef!! However you may call it a potato leek soup.
By all virgins hot or cold, it's an extraordinary deep and rich flavor, yet very light and refreshing. the depth of the potato and leek flavor remarkably intense.
