Potato leek soup is one that lives in my memory. My grandmother's was the best. At least that's the way I remember it. My mother said she didn't remember her mother ever making it!
Sounds like a perfect valentines dinner starting!

Looks divine. Shame it's only about 6C here at the moment - vichyssoise isn't really where it's at right now!

Hi Bron,
Love the soup.
Is that green onion stems having buds which paired along with potatoes?
We used to make stir fry with those stems and buds in india.Haven't seen any green onions with buds here ? missing that taste.
thanks for sharing.

I know most people think a romantic meal must have chocolate -- but I think it must have garlic! Both of these dishes are delightful.

I'm a big believer in a romantic garlic meal myself! The pictures and the meal look absolutely divine. I'm jealous and drooling...

Thanks Barbara, it was very special indeed

Hi Tanna, funny isn't it how we remember things others don't? Thank you for your kind comments

It hasn't been much warmer here this week 'spaghetti!

Hi Vineela, the green stems are actually chives from my garden, I thought the seed heads made them more photogenic. However they didn't go into the soup, but used simply to garnish.

Hi Lydia and Tempered woman,
I hadn't even thought about the garlic, how funny!
we have garlic often and adore the flavour, however it was a fairly mild aioli so not to be tasting it all throughout the meal... Thanks so much for your lovely comments!!

I love using leek for soup. I think it is giving a great and mild flavour to broth as well. Haven't tried Akaroa salmon (shame on me). Is it available in Auckland? Lovely creamy aioli, Bron.
