Many people think quiches are just a summer picnic dish, but I love them served warm in the autumn and winter too. This quiche is phenomenal and it’s the reason …
This may look like you’ve slaved over this dish for hours but it is in fact such an incredibly simple tart to make. By placing butter and sugar under the leeks in the pan I’ve eliminated the need for pre-frying, so it can all be done in the oven. The fresh lemon thyme really brings out the flavour of the leeks, but if you can’t find any, then regular thyme also works well. So simple yet it looks so stunning.
A proper pie that has a crispy, pastry top. Yum! Give this rich, full bodied pie a go, I can promise you that the combination of delicious British leeks, with venison and wild mushrooms are a match made in heaven. Serve with lashing of creamy mash potatoes, gravy and a glass of red. Go on, treat yourselves. Top tip, if you’re having a little soiree, why not make these “mini” so everyone gets their own delicious personal portion.
This hearty stew could just as easily be classed as a chunky soup. Leeks and smoked haddock are the perfect bedfellows; however you could also try this dish with some lightly smoked mackerel, kippers or even smoked chicken or ham. It’s really easy to prepare and uses very few ingredients.
