  1. Stephane, I have discovered pink peppercorns, which I grind up and add not only for its sparky pepper flavor, but also for its lovely bright red color. Also, I added minced garlic to the onion/leek/potato in chicken stock. I use a blender instead of the stick blender but that works out well too. For today's soup version, I added a couple tablespoons of mascarpone instead of cream. Very smooth, creamy result. Oh, and tastes well, too.

  2. Ooooh la la! Beautiful but I broke my wrist and will have a cast for 5 to 7 weeks 🙁 I can't cut anything! Ready-made food in the US is horrible 🙁 I have a stick blender in my RV it's easy and small. Potato and corn chowder was the first recipe my grandmother taught me when I was home on leave from the Army during Christmas 1981. She was from Maine. Potato soup was life (in Maine) and so easy!

  3. Heh, I just bought some leeks a couple of days ago. My wife makes a similar soup, but we top it with bacon and pecorino romano. We use LOTS of leeks instead of onions, so it's much more of a green color (Also, leeks are one of my favorite veggies). I think I'll try my hand at this tonight, and aim for a mix of your technique and hers.

  4. I first stumbled upon this channel with the chicken veloute video some five years ago and I've been a subscriber since.

    The presentation style and equipment have improved a lot since that video – but Stephane's knowledge and passion for cooking still remains the driving force.

    Thank you for sharing that with us, I've learned a lot and especially appreciate all the chicken recipes.
