Blessed be the Leek

StockFood Feature by Great Stock! | 7 Images & Text

The leek is part of the onion family, but has a milder flavour than its cousin. On St David’s Day, this vegetable leaves the kitchen and appears on the parade hats of traditional Welshmen as the national emblem of Wales. Its creamy mildness has earned the leek the title “king of the soup onions”. Two of the best-known soups are Scotland’s cock-a-leekie, made with chicken and leeks, and vichyssoise, made famous by a chef at the Ritz in New York.
