Let’s be honest, Leeks aren’t on the top of your shopping list. This blog has the very real potential of changing that. Leeks are now in peak season and with St David’s Day around the corner it’s time to bump leeks up on the agenda. We’ve collated 5 of the best leek recipes from the foodie web for you to have a go at – plus they all have a special Majestic wine match. Bonus.
1) Classy Leek
The Kitchn – Lemon Frittata With Leeks And Goats Cheese
A classy frittata deserves a classy wine. This little French number fits the smooth, creamy and cheesey frittata profile perfectly – Chardonnay Saint Roch, Puy de Dome.
2) Soupy Leek
3) Cobbled Leek
4) Bacon Leek
BBC Good Food – Leeks With Bacon & Mushrooms
Strictly a side dish, we wouldn’t blame you for eating these bacon and mushroom leeks all on their own. The Italain Copertino Masseria Monaci makes for a delish partner in crime.
5) Soufflé Leek
About.com – Cheese and Leek Soufflé
There’s only one way to celebrate St David’s Day in style – that’s right, with a cheese and leek soufflé. Pair with a glass of fizz for extra panache – we recommend the Prosecco di Conegliano.
