Leon Ingredients & Recipes Cookbook by Allegra McEvedy

Every high street should have a Leon; fast food restaurants that offer healthy, seasonal, affordable dishes. And now there’s a cookbook – hooray!

Leon Ingredients & Recipes Cookbook by Allegra McEvedy

Since it was published at the beginning of October, the Leon Cookbook – written by  chef, food writer and part-proprietor of Leon, Allegra McEvedy – has proved so popular that the publishers have already ordered a reprint. It’s not hard to see why; Leon is as sexy as a cookbook gets – stylish, interesting, and full of tempting, yet inexpensive, seasonal recipes.

A compendium as well as a cookbook, this charming tome is split into two parts: ingredients and recipes. Inside, there’s a wealth of information with added extras such as a pull-out seasonality chart, a pull-open essential store cupboard and even a cheese map. Written in Allegra’s warm, light-hearted tone, it’s as much a homage to family and friends – whose nostalgic snaps and favourite dishes are interspersed throughout the recipe section – as it is to the fresh ingredients she passionately advocates. This book is a must-have for any cookbook collector – for both its reference pages and recipes –  and also makes a great starter book. It wasn’t hard to make it the delicious. online cookbook of the year.
