2 ounces diced slab bacon
1 chopped white onion
1 leek sliced, sliced
1/2 pound waxy-style potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 Savoy cabbage, cored and sliced
1/2 cup white wine
4 cups vegetable stock
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons diced unsalted butter, at room temperature
Basil oil, for garnish
Fried basil, for garnish

Put the bacon in a pot over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon renders its fat.
Lower the heat to medium. Add the onion, leek, potato, and cabbage and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes more. Add the stock, bring to a boil, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Lower the heat and simmer until the potato is tender. Add the cream and simmer for a few minutes until the soup achieves a creamy texture. Remove from the heat and finish by whisking the butter cubes into the soup. (Don’t re-boil the soup after adding the butter into it, or it will curdle.)

Divide the soup among bowls, drizzle with basil oil, and garnish with the fried basil leaves.
