"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Brown Potato Soup is a German dish served on Christmas Eve. Uncle Mel's mother made it and we got the recipe from her. I make it with Mel's help and it has become a tradition over the years. He always peels the potatoes and helps with thinning down the roux. All our children love this soup and make it for their families if they're not here with us.
