Rich Leek Tart

I am scared of cooking.

I get panicky and anxious. I never seem to have the right ingredients in. I often over or under cook dishes. I despair of the mess. We are vegetarian and I cook a lot of quorn and processed foods like ready made pies. We eat a lot of veg, salad and fruit but still I worry I should be giving my family a better, tastier, healthier and less processed diet.

My good  friend Chris Mosler is a food blogger and has offered to hold my hand as I learn to cook, answer my questions and provide me with some great recipes. We started out with one of her most popular dishes…Leek Tart

Hers looked so god i was scared to try it! I did a specific shop for ingredients so I knew I had all I needed and I made sure I had a free afternoon. This all helped to reduce my anxiety as often it is rushing that stresses me out and puts me off cooking.

I gathered my leeks, butter, oil, pastry, cream, cheese, mustard, salt and pepper all together.

I found a little used flan dish, some baking paper and scales.

I took a deep breath.

Have a look what happened next……

My husband declared it the best thing he had ever tasted, and I grew some confidence.

Have a look here for Chris’s Leek Tart recipe,  I will be definitely making it again!
