‘Leon is the future’ GILES COREN THE TIMES



Since the publication of the best-selling and word-of-mouth phenomenon LEON: Ingredients & Recipes two years ago, Leon has continued to revolutionize fast food as we know it. Challenging the perception that fast food can't be healthy, delicious or fun, they continue to push boundaries by producing seasonal, invigorating dishes, which taste good and can be made with ease, speed and a smile.

LEON: Naturally Fast Food contains over 200 new recipes for bold flavoured dishes that can be prepared quickly at home. There is plenty for the experienced cook, the culinary adventurer and the beginner alike. Sticking to the Leon mantra – “food should taste good and do you good, and everyone should be able to enjoy it” - these recipes will become firm favourites in households everywhere.

A BOOK OF TWO HALVES, the first half of the book contains Fast Food recipes – recipes for every occasion that take a maximum of 20 minutes to prepare. The book features dishes that will take you from morning to night: whether it’s a Knickerbocker Glory for Breakfast, a simple soup for lunch, a Dalston Sweet Potato Curry for dinner and store cupboard classics that you can rustle together from ingredients from the local Costcutter. There are also ingenious ideas for BBQs, menus for party foods and meals that you can cook for the kids.

The second half of the book is focused on Slow Fast Food – things that can be made in advance when you have some time and can be cooked up quickly when you don’t. There are slow cooks and stews such as Benny’s Slow Cooked Lamb with Indian spices or Pot Roasts such as Chicken with 100 Cloves of Garlic. Plus an entire chapter on Preserves – which includes pickles, potted meats, chutneys, jams and jellies.

LEON: Naturally Fast Food exudes all the freshness, warmth and enjoyment that wGeoe have come to love from LEON. It is packed with information, ideas and inspiration as well as being absorbing and beautifully designed.
