Winter leek season is in full swing, share your favourite leek recipe and be featured in TD!

January 13, 2010
The recipe should take under 40 minutes from start to finish (even preferably under 30 min) and be delicious. I will pick three recipes and test them with a panel of foodie friends, the best one will be featured in the first Feb issue of TD!

    Pan-fried mackerel, chorizo-braised leeks and shallot crisps
    By Marcus Wareing.

    I love mackerel but it is often overlooked by many in favour of more expensive fish, but it has wonderful flavour and texture. This dish combines some fantastic flavours that make it really special and deserving of any restaurant table. Surprisingly easy to prepare. The leek and chorizo is a great combination and would probably work well with other fish. I didn’t bother with the shallot crisps.

    Hi Ben thanks for this great suggestion, I love both Marcus Wareing’s cuisine and mackerel, so this one sounds like a potential keeper!

    Thomas Keller’s Leek Bread Pudding (from his book “Ad Hoc at Home”). Think bread and butter pudding, but with a savoury twist:

    Leeks with eggs, spinach and tomatoes. Chop up the leeks, scramble the eggs with a little milk and pour into a frying pan that can go in the oven. Cook, until set, then add fresh spinach and tomatoes(or a can of diced tomatoes0, parmesan cheese, cover and place in the oven until the spinach has relaxed. Delicieux!
