Chanterelle Mushroom Soup

Chanterelle Mushroom Soup

Chanterelles have a lovely mellow flavor and a beautiful light-orange color. If you can't get your hands on chanterelles, really any other wild mushroom or store-bought chestnut mushrooms will do. Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream.
