I'll be back in a jiffy
Nowadays, people are always in a rush. Things have to go faster than fast. Patience is no longer in the dictionary. Slow cooking is old school. So what do we do? We eat way too much fast food for our own good. Fast food and healthy cooking is not really the same thing. That's exactly what the people behind Leon's must have thought, when they opened their first restaurant in London. They have expanded their restaurants, so you can enjoy their food on different locations. They know they can't do much about the rushing and hurrying. But they do know about good and healthy food. They wanted to make a healthy fast food place, where people could enjoy a fresh meal without having to sit there for over an hour.
I had a delicious Vegetable Tagine at Leon's. Full of chickpeas, zucchini, peppers, brown rice,.. and the most delicate herbs. Some Lebanese flatbread on the side.. Yum Yum.. I'm a fan! That's why I bought Leon's cook book as well. The recipes are so easy and the ingredients are not that hard to find. Tonight, we even had our own homemade Lebanese bread! Right out of the Leon's cook book.
Do you think Belgium would be ready for Leon's?
