Note :

This delicately flavored cold soup was a instant success when a New York chef created it during the summer of 1910, and it has never lost its powder to charm. If you are unable to obtain leeks, you can substitute three finely chopped onions.

Cooking Tip :

Once considered exotic, leeks are now available nearly all year long. They tend to collect sand and grit in their tightly folded leaves, so be sure to wash them thoroughly.
