The mushroom soup is a versatile dish, eclectic, always stylish and always welcome: This version is francesizzante, Why lel has a light roux with butter and flour bases, which causes the stock takes a slightly velvety consistency that makes it hearty and delicious. I use mixed mushrooms: porcini and chanterelles (chanterelle mushrooms), indispensable, But even pioppini and some mushrooms, as a matter of volume and texture.

If you want to prepare the soup of porcini mushrooms and chanterelles perfect, You must first prepare a broth with pieces of scrap and some mushroom stem, in order to give to the soup that unmistakable note of underbrush.
