Get the fresh leeks. Trim off the outside or coarse layer until you get the lovely fresh part of the leeks.
Run the knife down the leaks length and cut it into quarters, then wash it because they are sometimes muddy. Wash it from the root down.
Slice the leeks about a centimeter in length and put it into the pan to slow cook them.
Turn the temperature down and let it sweat away with a splash of water (about half an hour).
Remove the bay leaves then add two tablespoons of flour to the pan, give it a little stir.
Pour a liter of milk into the pan. Stir it slowly and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
You can leave it chunky if you want, or use a food processor to make it smooth and silky. This also brings out the sweet leeks flavor.
Add half of the grated cheese and half of grated nutmeg. Mix.

Next, put the white sauce all around the meat.
