Ingredients
  • 3 cups sliced leeks, white and tender green parts
  • 3 cups peeled and roughly chopped baking potatoes, like russets
  • 6 cups water
  • 11/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream

Correct the seasoning, to taste, and puree with a handheld immersion blender, or in batches in a food processor.

Whisk in the cream and reheat before serving. Top each serving with a dollop of creme fraiche and sprinkling of fresh chives.
