British Leek Growers Association launches lockdown competition
The competition is open to everyone from chefs to home cooks and aims to encourage sustainability and minimise food waste.
Entrants should provide a photo of their final dish along with a list of ingredients and the method used. Entries have to be emailed to the British Leek Growers Association by 18 February 2021 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Chairman of the British Leek Growers Association Stewart Aspinall and naturopathic chef Julie Cleijne will judge the recipes. The winner will get a £100 voucher, a full day’s training or consultancy with Cleijne and a trip to a leek farm (or financial equivalent).
Cleijne said: “Simply get creative with every part of the leek, creating recipes that either use the whole leek, or as much of the leek as possible – minimising waste.
“All recipes must include leeks as an intrinsic ingredient, and you can enter anything from a canapé, starter, side dish or main course to even a dessert recipe! It’s up to you.”
