6 tablespoons minced shallots
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 cup diced celery
4 tablespoons paprika
4 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoon black pepper
3 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (2 tablespoons if you want to clear your sinuses)
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons dried thyme
4 tablespoons Old Bay
3 cups chicken broth
6 bay leaves
Salt and pepper
6 cups milk
6 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup green onion
6 tablespoons blond roux *
