                         -RITA TAULE   (BTVC62A)
    2       tb           Unsalted butter
    2       tb           Onion -- finely chopped
    1       lg           Leek -- rinsed well;
                         -sliced (about 1 cup)
    2       c            -double-strength
                         Chicken broth
    1       c            Potato -- peeled and diced
    1 1/2   c            Whipping cream
      3/4   ts           Salt -- (to taste)
                         Freshly grated nutmeg
                         -to taste (I omitted this )
      1/4   c            Blue Cheese -- crumbled
                         -or Parmesan
    4                    Shots dry white wine :-)
 
   Melt butter in a heavy saucepan.  Add onion and leek
   and cook slowly; stirring often, until soft.  Stir in
   broth, then add potato. Cover and cook until potato is
   tender.  Cool, then process in a food processor or
   blender until pureed.  In another saucepan, bring
   cream to a gentle simmer, cook until just slightly
   reduced, then stir in leek mixture and heat until very
   hot (but don't boil).  Season with salt, pepper and
   nutmeg. Serve hot. Sprinkle 1 Tbl. cheese over each
   serving and offer a shot of the wine on the side.
   Hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Slurp, slurp.
