    Serves: 6

Add the cream and parsley. Simmer for 1 minute.

    4. Meanwhile, melt the remaining 50g butter in a saucepan and add the leeks. Turn until coated in butter. Season, add a couple of tablespoons of water, cover with a lid and sweat over a low heat until really soft.
    5. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Cook the potatoes until tender, then drain thoroughly and mash, adding the leeks and buttery juices. Season well. Top the pie with the mash. Bake for 30 minutes until golden and piping hot.
