Because it is explained to Bruce Wayne by his butler Alfred in the motion picture "Batman Returns" —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.80.91.2 (talkcontribs) 00:38, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

Can Europe have a say...[edit]

That there can be any question as to the French origins of this soup is extraordinary - especially given the fact it is to be included in the article on France and one, assumes, the French - as is the assertion that it is a simply a cold potato soup... and whether the cold or hot version is more common in Toronto... all shows a rather xenophobic attitude, if I may say so, rather typical of Wikipedia,

Article Expansion[edit]

In it's current state the article is pretty nonsensical; I'm working on fixing it up (Vichyssoise really is a cold potato soup, at least) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Soltak (talkcontribs) 00:45, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

I think there's two different varieties. The pureed leek one seems more common here in Toronto though. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.192.2.176 (talkcontribs) 04:52, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Origin[edit]

The Louis Diat 1917 invention inspired by earlier French hot version seems likely as researched by Seanibus here: http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:5HvUOSTCYhYJ:www.moviechatter.com/topic_show.pl%3Ftid%3D5621%26pg%3D3+Algonquin+Vichyssoise+-curry&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=10

But the date of 1917 and the location of Ritz Carleton NYC doesn't jibe with their corporate history . http://www.ritzcarlton.com/corporate/about_us/history.asp Any explanations? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ghosts&empties (talkcontribs) 21:13, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Consider this: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,935219,00.html?promoid=googlep

The original RC did not even open until 1927, and even then it was not in NYC (its in Boston) so can someone correct this? I will see if i can come up with anything.--Bud 06:48, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

I added the pronounciation; however I am not sure it is in the correct format. I am no expert on writing pronounciation guides as in a dictionary, but what I put is the best I could do. If anyone is more skilled in this, feel free to change it - the basis for my pronounciation was the movie V for Vendetta, as I said on the main page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 4.153.26.190 (talkcontribs) 18:04, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

That pronunciation was actually incorrect - an example of hyperforeignism. I've added an IPA transcription with a note about the common mispronunciation. --Safalra 18:41, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Botulism[edit]

It would be remiss to keep deleting info on what was the largest food recall in history, at its time. Its a comprehensive article, not a hagiography. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 20:17, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

  • You are free to start an article on the food recall. It is off-topic for this article on the foodstuff Vichyssoise. See WP:REL for the related policy. -- DanielPenfield 20:28, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Some sections of an article may grow beyond a discussion of the subtopic, in relation to the main topic. It is important that the focus of an article remains on its main subject and that information is placed in the appropriate article.

Trivia: bushy schwa[edit]

There is mention in the trivia section that this soup is called bushy schwa in Dublin. I did a google search and found nothing to back this up. In fact, I found evidence that in Dublin it is called Vichyssoise. Unless a reference can be found for this "fact", this information should be removed. For this reason, I have deleted it from the article. Clerks. (talk) 16:56, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

HOT BUSHY SCHWA! The pride of Dublin. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.162.123.197 (talk) 22:20, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Pop Culture[edit]

Should there be a pop culture section included? Vichyssoise is used in a line from the Mask:

The Mask: [to Tina] Kiss me, my dear, and I will reveal my croissant. I will spread your pate. I will dip my ladle in your vichyssoise. 
[Tina kicks him and scampers away] 
The Mask: [squeaky voice] She is so coy. 
[deep voice] 
The Mask: I love it!
