Chef's notes

Chef's secret, ready to cook leeks !

Leeks greatly enhance sauté's taste, soups, quiches, pastas and many other meals. But since its a bit difficult to clean, we mostly left it aside... To gain those precious minutes, opt for sliced leeks, sold in packages of 250 gr at the fruits and vegetables section at your local grocery store. Cleaned, sliced and ready to use, its the solution when you're short on time !
