National Vichyssoise Day is celebrated on November 18th each year in the U.S.
It is the day we recognize and relish the hearty soup made using pureed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock.
The soup’s name might be hard to pronounce because it is French, but it is usually pronounced as ‘vish-i-swaz.’
The soup is loved by many because of its thick and creamy texture; it is very easy to prepare and makes for a filling meal.
Although the soup is traditionally eaten as a cold dish, you can vary the temperature according to your preference.
