Competition: leek recipes for Spring!


The leek is a symbol of Wales and St. David (March 1st). The daffodil, another typical emblem representing Wales, is sometimes known as 'Peter's leek' although, as far as I know, you can't cook with daffodils.
The Secret Garden Club loves cooking with leeks, we even made our own day of it: All about Alliums, of which the leek is one of the stars. I use leeks in stir fries, soups and in 'poireaux vinaigrette'
How to prepare leeks:

  • Wash them by slitting the outside thicker leaves down the length of the leek, then, holding them open side down, rinse in running water. You will find dirt between the outer leaves but not the inner ones.
  • Use the white and the green
  • They are best cut on an angle to ensure quicker cooking.
The gardening website http://www.lovethegarden.com/ is hosting a competition to find the best leek recipes http://www.lovethegarden.com/blog/spring-a-leek-recipe-competition. Top prize wins a £200 voucher for the restaurant of your choice. Runners Up get a copy of my book Supper Club. Pretty cool eh?

Entering the competition is easy as pie. All you need to do is:
  1. Share your favourite leek recipe on your own blog;
  2. Mention this competition in the post;
  3. Email the URL of your entry to entries@lovethegarden.com before April 8th, 2011.
