    Good afternoon everyone. I made this today and I have to tell you it was delicious. I followed Joe’s recipe pretty much as given. Except I left out the salt and cream and I cooked it in two large stockpots which I found made it a bit easier. The Boss rated it lovely which clinched it. However, I have to tell you Joseph, I won’t believe anything you tell me ever again. 10 mins prep time to slice 2.5 kg of mushrooms. Naah. 😁  -  14 Mar 2018


    Absolutely delicious, my husband says it is the best mushroom soup he has had. I didn't add the parsley or nutmeg as I didn't have any and I added just a little double cream. Will definitely be making this again.  -  22 Sep 2017


    I have made this twice once full amount for a church lunch club second time for family. Both times delicious though I felt that there was to much butter the 1st time. I used frozen sliced mushrooms both times and they worked fine saved a lot of slicing especially the 1st time I'll certainly use it again. I also cooked it longer.  -  25 Apr 2017
