Since I’ve started growing some of my own veg, one of the challenges I’ve faced has been to do justice to the crop during the cooking process. I always try my hardest to turn my veg into something special and with my last two leeks I decided to push the boat out!

Planning to take something special to our trip to the woods on sunday I decided to make leek and goats cheese tarts.

Here is the story of the last two leeks:
