The two dishes did pretty well. I loved catching some of the positive feedback sent to Leon on twitter from customers, who seemed to really enjoy the curries.
So, when it came to writing Leon Book 4: Family & Friends, author Kay Plunkett-Hogge asked if we’d be willing to have mum’s original recipe included in the book. Not just that recipe, but a couple of others as well.
Back and forth went the emails, between mum, Kay and myself, selecting the recipes, fine tuning and double checking the wording, writing the recipe introductions and additional stories and scanning and sending photos of mum and I from days gone by.
The book was released in October and I was very excited to receive my copy (which arrived in the post about 5 minutes before we left the house to travel to Japan)!
Leon’s books have always included recipes from friends and family of the Leon team, but this book is all about them. Kay and John Vincent (Leon co-founder and co-author of the book) have gathered a wonderfully wide selection and there are many that catch my eye. Hopefully I’ll try some out myself soon and I can let you know how I get on.
In the meantime, photos of our pages, of which we’re very proud. Don’t they look great?
Leon Book 4: Family & Friends by Kay Plunkett-Hogge and John Vincent is currently available on Amazon for £17.50 (RRP£25).
