mixture to a blender or food processor. Puree and return to the pan. Add
the wine, bay leaf and stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt

stored refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen indefinitely and reheated
before finishing.) Just before serving, add the thyme, oregano, celery,
leeks and sherry to the hot soup base. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 2
minutes. Do not overcook, the vegetables should retain their crunchy
texture. Remove the bay leaf, stir in the chives and garnish with a
sprinkling of the gremolata. Yield: 8 serving
