'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, in London's Carnaby Street, opened its doors in July 2004. For its founders - Henry Dimbleby, John Vincent and Allegra McEvedy - the aim was to change the face of fast food, by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking to the high street. Six months later, Leon was named the Best New Restaurant in Great Britain at the Observer Food Monthly Awards. The menu is based around bold flavours, using simply-cooked fresh, local, natural ingredients with an emphasis on seasonal dishes; it also reflects how our eating habits change as the daylight house get longer and shorter. Leon Naturally Fast Food is again a book of two halves. The first half 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 things that can be made in advance when you have time, to enjoy when you don't have time. There is plenty in both halves for both the experienced cook and the culinary adventurer in search of inspiration. LEON's food message is a simple and honest one - cook and eat with the best ingredients available and don't forget the naughty bits that are so necessary for a fully-rounded life.

The philosophy at the heart of Leon: Fast Vegetarian is about cooking and eating delicious, healthy fast food made from sustainable vegetarian ingredients. You will find flavors in this book from all over the world, but the recipes have deliberately been kept simple, with ingredients that are easily available. Eating less - or no - meat has become key to the way many of us cook, and this collection of more than 150 really simple, really fast recipes, is a treat for vegivores everywhere. The first part of the book offers vegetable-based dishes that can stand alone as a whole meal; while the second part explores accompaniments and smaller plates. This is not about spending hours in the kicthen, but about bringing family and friends together with simple, gutsy, happy-making food. It should provide inspiration to both experienced cooks and culinary novices. This is not about spending hours in the kitchen, but about bringing family and friends together with simple, gutsy, happy- making food.

This is a book of two halves. The Ingredients Book arms you with everything you need to know about the basic building blocks of any recipe. LEON chooses its ingredients above all for their flavor and healthiness but also with a view to the world we live in, so that such shark-infested waters as sustainable fish are tackled and easy to navigate. LEON's top 250 fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, dairy and store cupboard ingredients are all given their own entries. Nutrition, a bit of history, flavor and the best way to get the most out of them are all covered, seasoned with a fair amount of random miscellany. The second half is The Recipe Book, where you can put your newly found knowledge of ingredients to great use with over 140 recipes: some are familiar favourites taken from LEON's menus such as the Original Superfood Salad, Moroccan Meatballs or Magic Mackerel Couscous and, for LEON Lovers everywhere, at last a recipe for the coveted LEON Better Brownie. Plus there are some recipes from the founders, their friends and those who helped make LEON what it is today, like Fred's Millennium Octopus and David Dimbleby's Spanish Omelette. LEON's food message is a simple and honest one - cook and eat with the best ingredients available and don't forget the naughty bits that are so necessary for a fully-rounded life.
