Variation mashed potatoes
Note on the mashed potato variant:
When preparing, omit the fresh potatoes for blending.
Alternatively, you can boil potato cubes in the stock as a soup starter and then remove until serving.
-> Bring the cream stock to the boil, add mashed potato flakes or ready made mashed potatoes by the spoonful next to the heat and stir in.
Blend the soup with a hand blender.
-> For a frothy soup you can add cold pieces of butter while blending.
Provide soup garnish
Remove a portion of the potato cubes from the soup cooked al dente.
-> Prepare as a soup garnish for serving.
Season and refine
Add a little finely grated lemon zest to the soup.
-> Season the soup with salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
Prepare the soup garnish and decoration, see the detailed ideas in the blog post:
-> Blanched leeks
-> Roasted mushrooms
-> potato chips
-> Herb chips
-> Salmon and chicken
-> Arrange the soup garnish in warm, deep plates.
Season the soup again, mix it up and arrange it in the plates until it is frothy.
Add the prepared decoration.

3. Star Cook Potato Soup Prepare Yourself
I found my love for potato soup with star chef Heinz Winkler in Aschau.
I will never forget this day because the soup was served with fresh white truffles.
The basket with the white truffles was in the kitchen in the morning and I could smell the truffles, which I didn’t know at that time, one floor below the staff entrance in the underground car park.
This soup was a formative experience for me and I would like to pass on my recipe.
You can prepare a soup with fresh potatoes or with mashed potatoes.
Mashed potatoes? YES! either you use homemade mashed potatoes, freshly prepared or from the day before, or in an emergency you use mashed potato flakes.
In the recipe you will find the corresponding information on the ingredients.
