Leek and Potato Soup…

January 25, 2017

At the Uptown market tomorrow Mary will be sampling a Leek and Potato soup made from Alice Water’s recipe in “The Art of Simple Food”.  Leeks have a long history in Mediterranean and Asian regions, with both Aristotle and the Roman emperor Nero having advocated making leeks part of a regular diets.  They have a delicate, milder flavor than onions and garlic, but many of the same health benefits that reduce the risk of heart disease.  The best tasting leeks are firm and straight with dark leaves and long white necks, about 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter.  Come by the market tomorrow morning for a sample, the weather will be perfect for a little warm soup.
