A Chuck Hughes Recipe... Need I Say More?

If you are not familiar with this French Canadian chef (yes he has a French accent) you are truly missing out. Star of the Cooking Channel show Chuck's Day Off, he is a full time chef whose true passion is cooking for others. The premise of the show is on Chuck's one day off a week he cooks in his small restaurant's kitchen for his family, friends, staff, vendors, or anyone who has truly inspires him. His laid back attitude, passion for food, and quirky sense of humor make it entertaining and informative. Not to mention he's not that bad to look at! Wink!

Enough about Chuck. This post is really about the super simple Sweet Potato Soup. I followed Chuck's recipe almost exactly. I added an extra leek and didn't use fresh ginger but the results were still good. The soup is thick and satisfying. Great for a fall afternoon. I even tackled Chuck's yummy matchstick potatoes and leek garnish. Those are so good and can be made as a garnish for anything. I couldn't stop munching on them!
