Wild Mushroom Soup - Potage des bois

This my favourite soup ever . Especially during Autumn where there are full with mushrooms  in every corner of the woods. For this recipe I have added few varieties of mushrooms such as Chanterelle, Girolle, Cepé and Bolet. It's always great to have a bowl of warm soup by the fire place during the cool winter months.

"I do not believe," said Mrs. Dashwood, with a good-humoured smile, "that Mr. Willoughby will be incommoded by the attempts of either of my daughters, towards what you call catching him. It is not an employment to which they have been brought up. Men are very safe with us, let them be ever so rich. I am glad to find, however, from what you say, that he is a respectable young man, and one whose acquaintance will not be ineligible."
"He is as good a sort of fellow, I believe, as ever lived," repeated Sir John. "I remember last Christmas, at a little hop at the Park, he danced from eight o'clock till four without once sitting down."
"Did he, indeed?" cried Marianne, with sparkling eyes; "and with elegance, with spirit?"
"Yes; and he was up again at eight to ride to covert."
