I found a nice patch of wild leeks (Ramps) and a few few years ago a store that used to make incredible wild leek dip with horseradish has closed, I have not been able to find any decent recipes online to make this with horseradish or to even come close to this recipe. Not sure what all was used but I believe garlic was part of it. Are there any chefs that would be willing to post a good recipe for these...please! I don't want to waste the leeks if I guess at a recipe. Would cream cheese, worcestershire,garlic and horseradish taste good together? Thank so much for any help :)

I doubt it had garlic, ramps have a garlic taste to them on their own. Sour cream, chopped raw ramps, maybe a little buttermilk(or just milk) to thin it. Salt and pepper, add fresh grated horseradish to taste... never made it just thinking out loud. If you like a really thick dip no need for the milk, the veg will give off some moisture too that will thin it.
I would probably add a bit of mayo also, not Miracle Whip, but mayo. Almost all "dips" I make use sour cream and mayo in varying ratios.
Funny you should mention Ramps, I was just debating if I should go out and look for some today or wait a few more days. Being from Wisconsin, we are probably a little behind you as to when things start to pop up. I have a great location where there are more Ramps than I could ever consider picking!!!!
