Slice the white part and the lower third of the green part of the leeks.
Wash in plenty of cold water to remove sand from the leeks.
Add the leeks or onions to the potatoes along with the hot chicken broth.
Cover and cook on the highest setting for 10 minutes, until the potatoes are very soft.
Puree the soup in a blender.
Add the cream and salt and chill for 4 hours before serving.
Garnish with chopped chives and black pepper.
Note: Cold soups need more salt than hot soups.
