Leek terrine gratin and Roquefort sauce


You'll need

9 large leeks, base trimmed and washed 1 fresh bay leaf 1 thyme sprig 1 garlic clove, crushed To serve: frisée, walnut and Roquefort salad   Roquefort sauce 10 gm butter 400 gm golden shallots, finely sliced 50 ml white wine 400 ml thickened cream 100 gm Roquefort, coarsely crumbled

Method

  • 01
  • Trim leeks to fit an 8cm-deep, 11cm x 28cm terrine mould, combine in a large saucepan with herbs and garlic. Cover with cold water, bring to the boil over medium heat, then simmer over low heat until tender (15-20 minutes). Drain leeks and, while still warm, layer in terrine to fit snugly. Cover with baking paper, weight with food cans, refrigerate until firm and set (6 hours-overnight).
  • 02
  • For Roquefort sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat, add shallot, stir occasionally until soft (10-12 minutes). Deglaze with wine, reduce by half (1-2 minutes). Add cream, then Roquefort, stirring until melted (2-3 minutes). Season to taste, keep warm.
  • 03
  • Preheat a grill on high heat. Carefully unmould terrine, cut into eight thick slices. Place each slice in an individual 150ml-capacity gratin dish, spoon over sauce and grill until golden (3-5 minutes). Serve immediately with frisée, walnut and Roquefort salad.
This recipe is from the July 2009 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“The gratin de poireaux au Roquefort at Belle Epoque in Brisbane was absolutely divine and I was hoping the chef would pass on the recipe so I could make it while leeks are in season.”
Tina Norman, Brisbane, Qld
