The Origins of Vichyssoise

When temperatures outside cool, Americans turn to hearty dishes such as potato soup, but it was actually France's King Louis XV who accidentally invented vichyssoise. This Cream of Potato Leek Soup recipe uses garlic, onions, potatoes, leeks, fresh chives and half and half.
Now that autumn is upon us, our eating habits, like our clothing, transition between the seasons...
...During fall when the days are still warm and the evenings have a bit of a chill, I love having soup for supper.
The traditional evening meal in France always includes soup. And, in my opinion, the French know a thing or two about making soup, especially potato soup. The French eat their potato soup either hot or cold. When cold, the French call their potato soup vichyssoise.
