  3. Sauté the finely chopped leeks with the bay leaf in the butter until translucent, add the diced celery and continue to cook for a few minutes without roasting.
  4. Deglaze with Noilly Prat and white wine, pour in the vegetable stock and add the lemon juice.
  5. Carefully simmer without a lid until the celery is soft.
  6. Add the crème fraîche and cream and use a hand blender to create a fine purée.
  7. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  8. Allow the soup to stand in the fridge for a few hours, season again once cold.
  9. Serve with Nuri sardines, a few drops of the oil from the tin, celery and roasted pine nuts.
  10. TIP: If you do not have any vegetable stock to hand, it can be prepared using the green parts of the leeks, the celery peelings, 1 peeled onion, 3 cloves, a little salt, 1 sprig of thyme and 1 crushed pimento seed. Add the above to 1.5 l water and simmer until ready for use.
