Mushroom Soup me vs Cooking House

Sometime back I attended a cooking lesson at Cooking House, Desa Sri Hartamas. One of the many menu was the mushroom soup. And here is a recreation by myself using the recipe by the famous Chef de Cuisine Francis Lim.

We need some mushroom here, I only use two types Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms as compare to Chef Lim.

And here some vegetables to go with it, leeks, celery and onions.

Firstly saute the onions, then mushroom and later the vegetables until it is fragrant. Add in the water and chicken cube to give you chicken soup. But of course the Chef Lim will have his own prepared chicken soup and more types of mushroom.

Thereafter when you want to serve it, add salt and pepper for flavor and thicken the soup with cream. Decorate it with some cream before serve to make it look more presentable well not like this,

This is how is being done by the Chef Lim as compare to this wanna be,

I have to start somewhere, so in a not so distance future, you will have Chef Tan running the show.
