1) Heat up 30g of butter into a thick bottom pot and add the finely chopped shallots. Allow to gently cook, covered, for 2 minutes.
2) Add the finely sliced mushrooms. Season well and allow to sweat off for 5 minutes.
3) Add the milk and cream and bring to the boil. Check the seasoning.
4) Turn down the heat and add the chopped Jerusalem artichoke and potatoes.
5) Cook for 50 minutes, stirring from time to time.
6) Meanwhile, pan fry the pork belly pieces until crispy and set aside on some kitchen paper.
Sprinkle some cheese on the slices of baguette and grill them. Set aside on a side plate.
7) Blitz your soup for 15 seconds*. Stir in 20g of cold butter and check the seasoning.

Arrangements :
Either serve your soup in individual soup bowls with some crispy pork belly pieces at the centre and some toasted baguette on the side or set it into a large soup bowl with the garnish to the side.

*After blitzing the soup you may pass it through a fine sieve to refine its texture. Personally I prefer to leave the soup as it is.
