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.
