A great breakfast or brunch has always been at the heart of the Leon experience and this irresistible compact collection of naturally fast recipes will make your tastebuds sing. From a Breakfasty Banana Split and a Mini Knickerbocker Glory to luxurious wheat-free Saturday Pancakes, every day will get off to a fabulously energetic Leon-style start.
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).
Now they're bringing their recipes and principles for great tasty healthy food into our homes. With four 'big' books, with a fifth on the way, and four 'little Leons' (pocket size additions that'll fit into even the busiest kitchens) Leon are making sure that it was never easier to feed the ones you love most fabulous food that will do them good.
Now, they have thirteen restaurants serving over 70,000 people a week - that's a darn good place to start.
