Fantastic! Delicious and comforting, will def be making this again. Didn't have any white wine so used veg stock and a splash of red instead. Worked fine, but white probably better though. Also, very lazily just made plain old cheese sauce with some nutmeg in - still tasted good! Mmmmm, thank you so much for this.

This was delicious! I didn't have any leek so I added some onion and just used more of the other vegetables. Thanks!
