Wild Mushroom Soup
Simply handling the main ingredients for this soup of wild mushrooms fills me with ecstasy and reminds me always of autumnal walks in beautiful woods in search of them. This soup can be made in two ways, both of which are delicious. I like to serve the version with fresh ceps. (During the rest of the year I make it with ceps I have frozen). The alternative version is even simpler, and (unless you have gathered your own ceps) cheaper.
