Leon: Ingredients & Recipes

aka the most beautiful cook book ever!

Leon is a trendy London restaurant chain that specializes is easy, tasty and affordable food for people in a hurry, nothing fancy but scrumptious, healthy and colorful, just like their luscious first book which is simply to die for and even comes with complimentary stickers making me as giddy as a schoolgirl.

I had been eyeing up this book for two years now but decided I wasn't going to buy it until I visited the restaurant which we finally did a few weeks ago.

The 300+ page visually stunning book is divided in two gorgeous sections (I cannot stress enough how pretty this book is) each with its own ribbon: ingredients and recipes.

Ingredients is basically self explanatory and is divided in several sections: vegetables, herbs, dairy, meat,... telling us where they come from, what to look at when buying, which are in season, how to prepare them, that sort of thing. It's filled with fun photo's drawing, charts, useful tips and everything you ever wanted to know from cheese to chillies.

The second part, recipes, ranges from breakfasts to desserts and everything in between. There's one chapter on meat but the rest of the book is vegetarian. Needless to say there will be a lot of cooking going on this weekend.

Feast your eyes on this:
