  4. Add potatoes and sherry. Bring to a slow boil for 10 minutes without the lid
  5. Take pot off heat and add the cream.

  7. Simmer for only another 5 minutes while gently stirring.
  8. Add salt & pepper a little at a time and adjust to taste.
  9. Serve in bowls with sourdough bread and add some Tabasco if you want more spice.
