Add the Diced potatoes and the chicken stock, let simmer for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Once the potatos are tender, place all of the ingredients in a blender and pulse until velvety smooth. Return to the same pot, add the heavy cream and reheat to desired temperature. Also at this point the soup can be chilled and served cold as the French version Vicheysoise, garnish with chopped scallions.Serves 6 as a starter course, 3-4 as a dinner.
