Melt the butter in a soup pan and add the leeks. Cook over a simmering flame for 3 minutes, continuously stirring until translucent, not allowing the leeks or butter to colour.
Add 1.5l of water and bring it to a boil. Add 1 level teaspoon of coarse sea salt to the pan, add the potatoes and simmer for 25 minutes.
Blend well and add the cream, salt and pepper before blending again.
Allow the soup to cool and then refrigerate for at least three hours. Sprinkle with chives and chervil to serve.

A hearty stew, coming in at under 350 calories, with garlic, paprika and olives.
Lamb and orange isn't necessarily the first combination that 'springs' to mind, but trust us - this one works!
Parboil and then grill for a lighter but still damn tasty Friday night sharing dish to chill out in front of the TV with, or serve at a party. Dos cervezas por favor!
Look at this Poached salmon & potato salad with creme fraiche. It is a great healthy recipe. It is a good source of Omega-3 fats and high in fibre!
