A French leek and potato soup in a chicken broth thickened with fresh cream and traditionally served cold.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • In a large stock pot melt butter over low heat. Add leeks and onion, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add thyme, marjoram, bay leaf and stir well. Cover pot and continue to cook for 12 minutes.
  • Add chicken stock and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook, partially covered for 30 minutes.
  • Puree soup in blender or food processor and cool.
  • Prior to serving add cream. If you are serving this soup warm you need to reheat the soup slowly so that the cream does not change consistency.
