Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Maison Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuissé

Today is National Vichyssoise Day! Pronounced vish – e – swaz, a delicious soup made with pureed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and sometimes chicken stock. Vichyssoise is traditionally served cold. I couldn’t honor this classic dish without quoting Julia Child, which was reportedly her favorite soup, “Here is the mother of the family in all her simplicity. You’ll note there’s no chicken stock here, just water, leeks, potatoes, and salt in the soup base. However, you may include chicken stock if you wish, and you may certainly include milk. A bit of cream at the end is a nourishing touch, but by no means necessary.” — Julia Child from The Way to Cook, Alfred A. Knopf. Enjoy this simple yet elegant soup with a glass of Pouilly- Fuisse and it will be pretty close to perfection!
