This is an excellent dish. And when you don't have a leek, feel free to chop up an onion in its place. The first couple of times I made this, I had trouble with dry spots of flour at the end. Now, I just combine the flour and milk together in a jar, pour a little between layers and the rest over the top, and no more bits of dry flour.
