To prepare the leek, slice it almost in half lengthways, then fan it out under a running tap to wash away any trapped dirt.
Now slice each half into four lengthways, then into ¼ inch (5 mm) slices.
After that, put the Boursin into a medium-sized bowl and cut the potatoes in half lengthways.
Protecting your hands with a cloth, scoop out the centres of the potatoes into the bowl containing the Boursin, add the milk or cream and season well with salt and freshly milled black pepper.
