If the garlic is too strong, and the tender chives too weak, if your onions make you cry, Take a Leek!
It's not exactly an onion. And it's not a chive. The leek - big, simple, and often under-appreciated and misused - is in fact an indispensable flavor component to many of the most pleasing dishes that can be cooked in a kitchen. First You Take a Leek
is fantastic light-hearted, leek-centric cookbook. It features 16 recipes for soups, stews, fish, meat, poultry, bread, salads, and more. Recipes include:
- Leek and split pea soup
- Garlic bread
- Leek soup
- Chicken with leeks casserole
- Leeks au gratin
- La Paloma Paella
- And many more!
The light-hearted approach and whimsical illustrations make this cookbook a joy to read.
