This one is rich enough to be served as a whole meal or as a first
course. I am glad to see that more Americans are beginning really to enjoy
the flavor of freshly grated ginger.

Boil the sweet potatoes until a table knife can be inserted easily. Peel
and either pur”še in a food processor or mash by hand with 1 cup of the
chicken stock.

Saut”š the onions, celery, and garlic in the olive oil in a 4-quart pot.
When the vegetables are tender, add the remaining stock, sweet potatoes,
and ginger. Bring to a boil and simmer 1/2 hour, stirring often so that the
mixture will be smooth. Then add the cream and sherry, and season with salt
and white pepper. Heat, sprinkle on chives, and serve at once.

NOTE: If soup is too thick for your taste, you can add more stock, milk, or
cream. Check for seasoning if you do this.
