Test Kitchen Notes

This soup could not be easier to put together. It is a luxuriously rich cream of celery soup, scented with onion and garlic and accentuated by bits of sweet, fresh asian pear, pieces of pungent, salty blue cheese, and shreds of verdant, tender celery leaves. It's ready in minutes, and its sophisticated flavors and simple garnish make it a perfect dinner party course. —duclosbe1
