  1. I decided to try this recipe, so had my iPad standing up following your instructions, all was easy to follow, but I did have a couple of mishaps I ended up pouring half the leeks and garlic on the floor as I completely missed the pan, then peeling the spuds I peeled one and it shot out of my hand and bounced across the floor like a bouncing bomb, so with half the leeks and garlic and 1 spud less I thought it would be a disaster.when it has boiled etc and hand blended and I seasoned with pepper it was blooming gorgeous, so I am going to follow your other recipes, hopefully managing to get “all” the ingredients in the pan next time.
