Best leek and potato soup with martini and ginger

This beautiful soup was prepared by Aska, friend of mine when I visited on Wednesday… I wanted to share with you the recipe, because this leek and potato soup is very easy to make, tastes delicious and you can serve it to elegant occasions as well.  
Beside I loved the way it was served. See this wonderful folk patterned, flax doily? 

Chop1 leek and fry it until the moment before it gets golden colour. Add 3 cups of martini bianco – then, oh God! – cook over low heat until martini is almost gone.
Chop 3 cups of  potatoes and add to leek with martini. Fry it little.
Add 2 cups of boullion.
Then herbs – here we come! Nutmeg, carum (caraway), ginger, cayenne pepper, black pepper and salt to taste.
After potatoes fall apart cooking is done, only mixing/blending is left.
Tastes best when served with parsley and 3-4 spoons of cream/yoghurt. 

Bon Appetit!
