Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
50g unsalted butter
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
6 young leeks, trimmed and sliced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1kg waxy potatoes, sliced very thinly
350ml cream
2 fresh rosemary sprigs, stalks discarded
salt and pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Heat the butter and oil in a large saucepan. Add the leeks and garlic, cover the pan and sweat over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring from time to time. The leeks should be soft and sweet.
  2. Butter an ovenproof dish and arrange a layer of sliced potatoes over the base. Cover with some of the leeks, then pour on some cream and sprinkle with some of the rosemary and salt and pepper. Continue layering until all the ingredients are used up. Finish with a layer of potatoes, covered with cream, and sprinkled with rosemary, salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to the oven and bake for around 35 minutes until the top is golden.
