Leeks are milder, but you'll probably have to cook with them frequently to appreciate the nuances.

Yes, leeks are milder and sweeter. While the are a member of the allium (onion) family they bring something different to the party. Leeks are considered a Welsh symbol, possibly introduced by the Romans who were outrageously fond of leeks going back to the time of Apicius.
