This recipe has a very distinct taste. I love it and was so excited when I made it for the first time for this site because it turned out perfectly! I felt like I was whisked away to Mamy's house. But I say it's a distinct taste for a reason. My husband said it was very good, but he likes some of the other soups more. Also note that at the grocery store I frequent, I can only find leeks in the organic section. I also pretty much use yellow potatoes on all of Mamy's recipes unless stated otherwise.
