What is St. David's Day dinner without leeks? I was searching for a new recipe and when I saw that two of Recipezaar's resident cooking goddesses, Kittencal and French Tart, both had given this recipe rave reviews, I knew it would be good! I followed the recipe exactly as written. Wonderful! Thanks, ColCadsMom! See all activity
