"This lightly-creamed soup is special. It works as comfort food for a casual soup & salad dinner or a starter course for an elegant dinner party. My SIL in the US gave me the recipe & said her mother had copied it from a cookbook, but did not recall the source. I wish I knew who to thank for this classy taste sensation. I did take the liberty of adding garlic & Old Bay Seasoning to the recipe as it was given to me. Enjoy!"
