    48FE0373-A3C0-482F-AED0-FA872D1D867A.jpeg I made a soup see? It’s got leeks and potato and bacon and cheese and cream and i just don’t know what to call it. Is it a chowder? A cream of potatoe soup? A baked potato soup? A leek and potato soup? And then I thought, what’s the difference between all those anyway!? I don’t know!

    Call it whatever you want, you created it! I would call it potato leek soup but whatever it is it looks good!

    Disneyland calls something similar a baked potato soup.

    Hopefully you can call it delicious. Beyond that I don't think it matters.

    I would name the soup taking into account the most dominate flavors. This will depend on how much of each ingredient is in the soup. In your case and not knowing the recipe I would do as follows. Creamy potato leek soup......If there's a lot of cheese I would call it Cheesy potato leek......If this recipe had any kind of seafood or meat in it, it would have to be in the name. ChefBillyB

    Call it George. Or maybe Martha, perhaps Tim or Tommy.

    Looks tasty, certainly getting to be soup weather here in Salt Lake City.

    Potage Parmentier? Potage Parisienne? Depends whether or not you purred it, really.
