Leon: Naturally Fast Food

By Henry Dimbleby and John Vincent

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

A collection of simple and delicious recipes from award-winning restaurant Leon that can be pulled together in a flash.

'The dream is to bring really good food at a good price to as many people as possible. It makes Leon sound like a new religion. If so, it's one that can count our judges as among its growing congregation of worshippers.' - Observer Food Monthly Awards

The first Leon restaurant, on London's Carnaby Street, opened its doors in July 2004, aiming to change the face of fast food by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking to the high street. Since then Leon has grown to more than 55 restaurants, including in Washington DC. Leon's food message is a simple and honest one that hasn't changed since the opening of that first branch - cook and eat with the best ingredients available and don't forget the naughty bits that are necessary for a fully-rounded life.

Leon Naturally Fast Food is a book of two halves. The first is Fast Food, which contains recipes for every occasion that take a maximum of 20 minutes to prepare: from a work day breakfast and children's meals to simple suppers and party food. The second half is Slow Fast Food, which contains meals that can be made in advance when you have the time, to enjoy when you don't.

The wide range of recipes will satisfy both the experienced cook and the culinary adventurer in search of inspiration.

And thank goodness they did, because this new generation of distillers not only customized conventional whiskey styles but also invented new ones never seen before. Whiskey America investigates how best to enjoy the new whiskies - in cocktails, with food, mixed or straight - and looks forward to where these exciting American spirits are going next.

Sophie Michell

They say you should never trust a skinny chef - but what if that skinny chef held the secret to losing weight without compromising on foodie pleasure? In her new book, executive chef Sophie Michell reveals the recipes she herself has used to lose weight despite spending all day, every day, surrounded by food. Sophie has developed this diet with an emphasis on flavour, so you'll never feel like you're missing out, even as you drop the pounds. The recipes have been carefully formulated to provide you with essential proteins and nutrients, and will leave you full of energy, with your taste buds satisfied and your body slimmer. With everything from smoothies and juices to brunches, packed lunches and impressive yet achievable mains, this diet allows you to really embrace your love of food. Enjoy a breakfast of Avocado and Chipotle Frittata, a dinner of Crisp Duck Wings with Miso Glaze and Kimchi Salad, and an array of tempting sweet dishes such as Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Cake. The recipes are so tasty you'll want to keep cooking them long after you reach your goal weight, helping you to maintain it - as Sophie says, a successful diet is 'a life choice, not something you endure to lose the pounds. ' With the focus on flavour and enjoyment rather than calorie counting, it's time to diet like a chef.
