Writing a book is a lot like having a child except that as mistakes pop up, you can sometimes correct them more easily with a book than you can with a child. Other times, as with your child, it takes a while for them to surface. (Believe me, the book still is a lot easier to deal with – most of the time.)
Literally the day after I submitted 2 small corrections for my book The New Fast Food, I received a Facebook message from a reader who asked about the 2 tablespoons (it ought to only be 2 teaspoons) of dried thyme in my Potato Leek Soup recipe.
Multiple thousands of copies of this book have been sold and no one let me know about this until recently – gosh darn it, right after the book went to press again.
And wouldn’t you know it, just today, I got another Facebook message about the same thing. (Does anyone use email any more?) It must be a Potato Leek time (or thyme) of year. So, here I share the corrected recipe for Thick and Creamy Potato Leek Soup.
I am still a bit sad that it will not be corrected in the new print version but you are the beneficiary. I love this thick and creamy soup that is not a whole lot more than cooked potatoes and leeks. Make a good broth to give it a good foundation.
If you have a copy of The New Fast Food cookbook, please correct it. If not, then buy a copy and make the correction. (Only kidding on this one.)
