Product Description

Book Description

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.

We are lovers of Leon and the first book really stood out from the crowd. This book is great in parts but not in others. It has quite a few basic recipes like a fry-up which isn't really what we were looking for. Still, it does have some lovely recipes in other areas especially for the children.

I have a made a couple of things from this book that are lovely but if you have the first book you would recognise a lot of the content, particularly from the first section.

I have literally hundreds of cookbooks, have taken many courses and even cooked commercially for a time. But I can safely say that I've never made so many things out of a single book since 'How to Eat' was published. Everything has been delicious and I can recommend the 'Turkey Bolognese' as a way of cutting down the amount of red meat we eat without compromising on taste or flavour. Two favourites spring to mind: 'Burmese Cabbage' which I often make when it's just me and I want to stuff myself without too many calories and the 'Moroccan Chricken with Olives and Lemon'. This is not only superb (my Mum's second favourite dish !) but has gone down in family lore as the dish that, when served to my husband, his verdict was "that was great but you should really try to make the chicken with olives and lemon dish we had in Morocco"! Luckily this was good enough that I've made it many times again despite the helpful comments.

Lovely book! Looks good and the recipes are really easy to follow. I always judge a cook book by how many recipes I use from it on a regular basis. I would have to say that I genuinely use the recipes in this book every day.

I love the Leon cook books. They have lots of ideas for new recipes and you can adapt them easily yourself. There's also other things to read in them, like information about what vegetables are in season etc.

If you are expecting a word by word, easy recipe book, then Leon is not for you.
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!

I loved this book. As a Mum of twins, there is so much to be inspired by. A beautifully produced book with great and easy recipes.

I like this book. I bought it as a gift and spent some time browsing for something with enough recipes and contemporary ideas to make a purchase worthwhile. We all have cookery books taking up room on our shelves whilst we go straight to the Internet for ideas! There are a lot of attractively photographed, heathy recipes. I road tested the chicken with preserved lemons and green olives and it was very well received by my teenage sons. I may buy it for myself!
