  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Saute celery and onion for about 8 minutes, or until tender.
  3. To the cooked potatoes add the celery and onion, 2 tablespoons butter, 4 tablespoons cream, celery salt and ground black pepper. With an electric mixer on low, beat until desired consistency is reached.
  4. To make the gravy melt 2 teaspoons butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in chicken stock and cook over medium-high heat until thickened. Stir in remaining cream and onion powder; heat through.

Onion powder

Onion powder is available in Asian markets; in a pinch, try simply omitting it from the recipe.
