Lovely soup and really easy to make. The only thing I found was that the amount of cornflour was not enough to thicken the soup so I just added some more. Made this several times now and it is amazing that people that don't like celery and or Stilton still love the soup. Keeps well in the fridge for a day or two - 19 Jan 2016


Absolutely fabulous soup. I used my hand held immersion blender to puree the soup. Everyone loved it. Thank You! - 26 Feb 2015
