If you are a fan of Top Chef and know Fabio Viviani, please look up his story of “leeks tucked in bed”. If you are not a Top Chef fan, do not worry, as this is a wonderful recipe that is simple and yet will woo dinner party guests. The key to this recipe is blanching the leeks long enough – they should be nearly ready to eat when you align them in the pan. Serves 6.
