      Title: Lovage, potato & buttermilk soup
 Categories: Soups
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
  2 1/2 oz Finely chopped onion
     10 oz Corsely grated raw potato
           Fresh young lovage leaves
  1 1/4 pt Chicken or vegetable stock
    1/2 pt Buttermilk, more if desired
 
  Put the onion into a heavy-based saucepan.  Add the stock and bring to
  boiling point very slowly so the onion begins to soften a little.
  
  Meanwhile coarsely chop a small handful (5 or so tablespoons) of
  lovage. Add the potato and herbs to the pan and pour on 1/2 pint
  buttermilk. Increase the heat very slightly and bring the mixture to
  a bare simmer. Stir vigorously all the while as the potato starch
  will thicken the soup, which may stick to the pan base.  Half-cover
  the pan and reduce heat as low as possible once again.  Cook very
  gently indeed, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are
  perfectly tender.
  
  Whizz the contents of the pan to a smooth puree.  Season with salt and
  pepper and with extra lovage if you like.  Whizz again and thin to
  taste with a little more stock or buttermilk.  Reheat gently or chill
  thoroughly before serving, then garnish with a swirl of buttermilk
  and a small flotilla of chopped fresh lovage.
