Well if you're going to cook a recipe from the Leon chain you might as well as cook their iconic meatballs! So that's the recipe I chose from the first Leon cookbook by Allegra McEvedy.
I love Leon's food and marvel at how they manage to make brown rice taste appealing to the masses!
The book was first published in 2008, and I probably bought it that year.
There's an interesting fact in the intro to this recipe which is that since Leon opened they have rolled over 5 million meatballs (by hand!) which side by side they could run the entire length of the Central line and back again - and that was in 2008!
Which is a whole lot of balls.
And I wonder how many more times it'd be now...
