Cream of Brie and Leek Soup
Bon Appetit March 1988

 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
8 large leeks (white parts only), finely chopped
4 cups or more unsalted chicken stock
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups half and half
1 1/2 pounds Brie cheese, well chilled, cut into small cubes (with rind)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives

Melt 1/4 cup butter in heavy large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook until translucent, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes. Add
4 cups stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until leeks
are tender, about 25 minutes. Purée mixture in batches in blender.
 Melt remaining 1/4 cup butter in heavy large non aluminum saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir 2 minutes. Blend in half and half 1 cup at
a time; whisk until smooth. Add 1/4 of cheese and blend until smooth and melted. Repeat with remaining cheese in batches.
Strain soup through fine sieve, pressing with back of spoon. Return to saucepan. Mix in leek purée. (Can be prepared 8 hours ahead. Cool, cover and refrigerate.) Rewarm soup over low heat, stirring constantly. Thin with more stock if desired. Season with salt. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle
with pepper and chives. 6 servings.
