Reviews Leon

  • Nancy
    O M G, loved this book! It's the quirkiest little cookbook I've ever seen, lots and lots of pictures, few of them are actually of food, but it's okay. Every recipe calls for ingredients I actually buy and use, most recipes have 4 or 5 short steps, a few of the recipes are classics such as vampire chicken with 100 cloves of garlic, most are ordinary yet unexpected with their use of spices or veggies. This is one book I'll have to actually buy off ...

    If you know me, then you know that I love to buy/use cookbooks written by restaurants/bakeries. This was purchased as such, but I will probably never make use of it. The recipes are idiotically simple, I don't think you need a recipe for most. However, it's one of the most beautifully designed books I've ever seen. Quite quirky and special.
  • Jess
    Enjoyed reading this. Very simple recipes with not too many ingredients, with variations suggested, and the same Leon notes statingwheat-free, gluten-free, vegan, etc, which makes me tempted to try the recipes.
  • Rebecca
    Some yummy recipes in here, I was especially pleased at the number of vegetarian or vegetable-based recipes... I cooked the South Indian pepper chicken tonight, a very easy but delicious curry-with-a-difference!
  • Holly
    There are good recipes in here, but nothing that I'm interested in making. I still love how they designed the book.
  • Lucie
    Still good but nowhere near as good as the first Leon book. Too many recipes mean a lot of the book is just fluff.

    Spent more on buying a copy for my mother than I did for mine. Wish I could buy it for everyone.
