Cock-a-leekie

Location: Wolverhampton
Era: 1990 onwards



“My favourite meal as a child was a dish called cock-a-leekie – which is chicken and leek in white creamy sauce with croissant on top. My Mum’s favourite meal is mushrooms and eggs on toast and my Dad’s favourite meal is tinned chicken curry. My Mom makes a really nice chicken stuffed with cheese, served with crispy roast potatoes and a sherry sauce.”
