This recipe was from Chef Keith of the Hanger Restaurant where I worked as a waitress 40 years ago. He used to make this soup every Wednesday. People would line up at the door to make sure they got their "fix" before we ran out. If they only knew how much butter was in it...Chef Keith's secret and now ours to enjoy!
