Potage Bonne Femme

Leek Carrot and Potato Soup

Potage Bonne Femme – my Mum used to make this soup – to perfection – the recipe asks for a teaspoon of brown sugar – which she always used to include. 😉 Some French recipes suggest a glass of white wine! 😆 I compromise with a flat teaspoon of honey […]
