If you live in Northern VA and have never had the Tomato Basil soup at La Madeline, you are missing out my friend. Its the best. THE BEST. no other tomato basil soup compares. not even close. Unfortunately there are no La Madelines around here. You can understand my delight when i came across this pin the other day. The recipe. I haven't tried it yet, but i will this week to see if this in fact tastes like THE La Madeline Tomato Basil soup.
