Leon was voted 'Best New Restaurant' by judges Rick Stein, Gordon Ramsay, Nigel Slater, Heston Blumenthal and Jay Rayner in the 2005 Observer food awards. There are now 33 Leon restaurants across the UK. "Leon is the future", The Times; "There's finally a place where you can have your cake and eat it", The Independent. Leon's first book, Leon: Ingredients & Recipes was a bestseller.
About the Author
Leon was founded on the twin principles that food can both Taste Good and Do You Good.When Henry Dimbleby, John Vincent and Allegra McEvedy opened their first restaurant, on London's Carnaby Street in July 2004, their aim was to change the face of fast food. Six months after opening, Leon was named the Best New Restaurant in Great Britain at the Observer Food Monthly Awards (by a judging panel that included Rick Stein, Gordon Ramsay, Nigel Slater, Heston Blumenthal, Ruth Rogers and Jay Rayner). There are now 33 restaurants serving over 120,000 people a week.

If however, you are a relatively confident cook and are looking more for inspiration in terms of mixing flavours, serving things up, refreshing and reigniting your kitchen, then Leon does the trick. It's more about cooking and getting messy, than about perfectly placed garnish and napkins.
That said, it *IS* quite the coffee table book, but for people who truly love food. Sit down, flick through the pages, and get inspired to cook something completely new. As a vegetarian I don't normally buy non-vegetarian cook books (as so much of it is irrelevant to me), but I liked Leon so much when I flicked through it, that I made an exception - and am very happy I did!
Leon is very graphics and picture driven, and yes - very "hipster". But it's a very nice cook book with PLENTY of fresh ideas, so if you can live with the hipster side of things, BUY IT!

This book has nothing to do with the food that they serve at their outlets. I have a tried a few of the recipes and they were either very bad or inedible, I also find it annoying... Read morePublished 13 months ago by plobaire
