Expert Tips

  • Did You Know? Looking like a monster green onion or scallion, the leek is a relative of the onion and garlic family. Its flavour, however, is somewhat milder than its cousins'.
  • Purchasing: When you're looking for a leek, choose one that has a crisp, bright green top and blemish-free white bulb.
