I have taken the time to list all of the recipes featured in the book. I do hope this is a help to you when you come to decide whether or not this is the book for you.Read more ›
It's a very appealing book, lavishly illustrated with photos of the authors', er, family and friends, but in a way that's charming rather than irritating. Some great ideas on children's cooking, both for things they'll enjoy making and for heathy dishes they might actually eat. Examples include pesto chicken, fish finger wrap (actually a posh fish finger sandwich but made me laugh), and showing kids how to make fresh pasta and pizza, to name but a few.
Difficulty rating is mild to moderate - even the most inexperienced cook will find plenty to get stuck into.
There are lots of digressions into snippets of nutritional info, which are entertaining and informative. The book is divided into three sections: Today - which covers breakfast, brunch and quick meal ideas for tired kids in the evenings; Tomorrow - cooking for special occasions where some planning might be required; and Yesterday - indulging in the authors' nostalgic family food memories and which contains such classics as Crepes Suzette and Coq Au Vin.
The book spans a wide range of cuisines and dishes,- I guess a lot of which passes for British these days with plenty of both Asian and traditional English recipes. Among other digressions, there's also a useful and inspiring chapter on quick meal ideas from the tins and packets languishing in your store cupboard.Read more ›
Leon: Friends & Family (book4) is a great addition to the Leon name. It is full of classic (cottage pie) and adventurous (sushi rolls) recipes; geared at all levels of cooks. It has a guide to cooking with children and 10 recipes everyone should know before they leave home. Which are all very useful.
The book is divided into 3 sections: Today, recipes that focus on feeding you, friends/family today right now. Tomorrow, recipes that need a bit of preparation for parties, holiday's, and such. and Yesterday, recipes for food that take you down memory lane. The food you're grandparents cooked or the meal you had on a first date. There is something for everyone in this book.
I'll be celebrating my 8th Thanksgiving, in the UK, at the end of the week. I'm planning it for Saturday not Thursday for timing. Seeing as I've moved it this year I plan to go all out and Leon has helped me plan for an awesome dinner. I will let you know how I get on.
The book is very well laid out and an enjoyable read. I cannot praise this book enough! I like this one better then Leon: Naturally Fast Food. Book 2 which I also own. Mainly because I have two young kids who can be a bit picky. Where book 2 is good this one as the title suggests is focused on feeding the family.Read more ›
