Chef's Notes

This potato soup recipe is very simple, and can be done in a short period of time. You can omit a few steps and make it even simpler. Such as cooking the onions and celery before hand. You also do not have to thicken, it is a personal choice, and I find it makes a heartier soup if it is.
