Shitake and crimini mushroom soup

400 g crimini or any brown mushroom (cept the poisonous ones)
200g fresh shitakes
4 cups chicken broth
1 large onion
2 large carrots
some basil or rosemary
salt and pepper
2-3 tbsp butter
150 ml cream
3 tbsp flour
few shakes of worchestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Fry onions and carrots in butter until soft (5-10 min), then add the chopped mushrooms, fry for another 5 min, then add flour. stir it around. Then add the stock and the herbs. let it cook in there for a good 20-30 min. Then cool it a little, put half in blender then put it back in to make it more soupy. then you can add the cream, and im constantly monitoring for salt and pepper. At the end dump in a few dashes of wooster (worchesetire.. dont know how to spell it). Delicious if I do say so myself.
