Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup
April 02, 2013

I'm what you'd consider a non-cook. If it has more than 2 steps I'm usually lost. The first time I made this recipe I followed the video recipe for it (found on this site and on Food Wishes). I was so pleasantly surprised when the soup came out exactly as I thought it should. I now make it every week or two and I am as happy with it now as I was back then. Creamy and flavorful without being overpowering, it's everything I look for in a comfort food. I do leave out the cayenne now, though it's tasty either way. That's just my personal preference. Don't miss the video. There's nothing like Chef John's good humor to make you smile while you cook.
