About Leeks:

Leek season in Britain is from November through to April and this is when leeks are at their absolute best. You can also get leeks in May or June, and they will be small, sweet and tender. You can get forced leeks throughout the rest of the year but their flavour will not be as sweet and they will need to be cooked down for longer to get the best flavour from them.

Leeks don't just have to be used in plain dishes with cream or cheese. You could pep them up by adding a bit of spice spring leeks in particular are delicious when served with fresh chillies and sweet, tangy vinaigrette. Take a look above for a huge range of leek recipes.
