  3. Add in the stock, mustard, pepper and nutmeg, then simmer for 15-20 mins. Once the potatoes are soft, add cream and blitz to a smooth texture with a stick blender. Season to taste.
  4. Make your croutons by frying your bread and leeks in Black Truffle Oil until crispy . When golden, toss in a bowl with sea salt and your freshly chopped chives.
  5. Pop your croutons on top, serve with extra Black or White Truffle Oil drizzled on top of the soup for extra indulgence.
