      I can't believe I'm the first to try this. It is definitley a great comfort food. You could probably add even more potato if you want a heavier consistency, but this is very nice. Served with a salad and some fresh foccacia - delish! The only thing I did different is use a splash of Merlot in place of the sherry. Worked just fine. Thanks Mark!

      Excellent soup! I doubled the potatoes and used 1 cup half & half instead of half cup whipping cream. I also used white pepper, though I'm sure black pepper would do just fine. I didn't have any sherry on hand, either.

      I enjoyed this very much. I scaled the recipe, but didn't want leftover potato, so used more potato than called for. Being an impatient person, the 25 minute saute time seemed rather long, but I managed for at least 20 minutes over very low heat, and that seemed to be okay. I had lovely thyme from a friend's garden, but used a little whole milk rather than cream this time. I'm sure it would have been even better with the cream, but was still delicious with milk. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
