Recipe by MarieRynr

This is a soup I developed in response to a contest in a British Cooking magazine. I hope that you like it as much as I do.

I love celeriac and I love potato leek soup and this had the best of both. I am thinking that frizzled leek (thinly slice leek and fry in a half inch of olive oil and let drain) would go beautifully on top of this instead of the chives.
