I stumbled upon TS & JS’s food blog, [eatingclub] vancouver and drooled over almost all of their recipes.  Go check them out for sure.  The recipe for Cream of Fennel Soup really stuck with me so I whipped up a batch, and we were not disappointed.  It is so rich and soothing.

Neither of us was big fans of Fennel;  me, because the scent reminded me of black licorice, which I hate and Lenny, well, he had really never eaten it.  Then a couple years ago, I made this wonderful salad which called for fresh fennel.  We both fell in love with it.  Now, I use it in soups, salads, tarts and even to munch on.  This recipe is easy and ever so tasty!
