"Leon was founded on the principle:
that food can be both lovely and good for you..."
In continuing to share with you all some awesome wedding gifts that we received, I now have this amazing food encyclopedia/cookbook, given to us by a couple of very special friends living over in the UK.
Leon opened up as a restaurant in London in 2004, and from there expanded to nine restaurants in the UK. Leon pride themselves on the simple principle that healthy, nourishing foods can be delicious, and should be celebrated for their worth. Fresh, seasonal, healthy ingredients are the focus here.
Leon: Ingredients and Recipes is, to me, an encyclopedia of everything food related! I've been sitting every Sunday afternoon for the past month paging through this wondrous book, learning all sorts of amazing facts about every food ingredient under the sun. Origin, how to use, nutritional content, fun facts - it's all in this book!
I haven't yet got to reading the recipes intently yet, although I have perused a few pages and some of the recipes look amazing! I especially love the fact that all recipes focus on using fresh, sustainable ingredients.
For any foodies out there, this book is awesome! It's a coffee table favourite of mine, from here on out!
