Step 1:

Clean the mushrooms! Especially the morels, they need to be cut in half because they are hollow and cleaned inside. Chop the other mushrooms but leave morels in halves. Add the sliced mushroom caps and cook for 10 minutes, or until they are browned and tender.

Step 2:

Add the flour and cook for 1 minute.

Step 3:

Add the white wine and stir for another minute, scraping the bottom of the pot.

Step 4:

Add the beef stock, minced thyme leaves, 1½ teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 5:

Heat the ¼ pound of butter and add the leeks. Cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes until the leeks begin to brown.

Step 6:

Add the half-and-half, cream, and parsley, season with salt and pepper, to taste, and heat through but do not boil.

Step 7:

Serve hot.
