I love making soup. Years ago I worked in a resturaunt where this soup was one of the favorites. I learned how to make it to serve 50 people, and always had a hard time making a version to serve less. When the daughter of the owner of that resturaunt found and shared this version of the recipe with me I was estatic. No one seems to know who Cecile is, but bless her little Basque heart for this family size version of this recipe. If you like garlic, you will love this soup.
