    An Amazing Mushroom Soup Recipe | Chef Jean-Pierre (13)
    This is by far the best soup I’ve ever eaten. The first time i made it I froze the leftovers but it was so good it only lasted a week in the freezer before we ate the rest. I’ll be making it again but tripling it so I can share with some other mushroom lovers I know. I also used Chef Jean-Pierre Porcini mushroom salt and a little of his 18 year Balsamic in place of the port wine because I didn’t have the wine. I left out the cream so it could be frozen if need be and just put it in in small amounts when we reheated it. It was delicious! My picky husband even likes it. It is also really good without the cream if you want to save a few calories. Definitely saving this recipe!
