James Backhouse - Leon Rhubarb Jam Expert

James and the giant blackboard

James and Henry are the legends behind the "Farmhouse Kitchen" which took the Stourhead Show by storm back in the soggy summer months... James is the chap in the fetching apron above.

This is just a quick post to register my surprise at seeing one of his recipes in the amazingly designed Leon Cookbook that has just found its way onto the shelves. I took a sneaky picture which shows James's Rhubarb and Ginger Jam recipe. Nice one Backhouse!

It's a stunningly designed book, full of fold out pages, posters and above all delicious and healthy recipes. If there was a magic wand that could turn all McDonald's into Leons the world would be a much better place.

OMG another cookbook I've GOT to have, as if there aren't enough here already ... it's just that Leon is my favourite favourite place to eat in London

I haven't had a chance to read it properly because I only flicked through it in Waterstones. But it looked brilliant and I am sure the recipes are excellent. Especially James's rhubarb and ginger jam!
