Leon has extended its expertise beyond healthy fast food – by launching a cookware range that will be sold through John Lewis are set to unveil an exclusive cookware collaboration.
The fast food chain has developed a “vibrant” 40-piece cookware range that will be launched in all John Lewis stores from 5 September.
The collection includes the perfect kitchen staples, such as a cast iron griddle pan, coloured stock pots, wooden tool set and terracotta tapas and lasagne dishes. There are also a number of Leon textiles, including a kitchen apron, tea towel set and oven mitt.
All the products have been developed with Leon co-founder John Vincent, and designed by Leon head of design Jo Ormiston in collaboration with John Lewis Cookshop buyer Nicola Hattersley.
John Vincent, co-founder & CEO of Leon said: “This range is a result of everyone at Leon and my family sitting around a kitchen table, wondering what cookware we would most like to invent. One of my favourite items, the Leon carving board, is my Sunday night. It is what you need when you have a roast chicken in the oven and Strictly results night on the telly. It is a testament to the strength of the John Lewis brand how excited everyone in the family, even my kids, are about our creations going into the shops this summer.”
Founded in 20014, Leon’s first outlet opened on London’s Carnaby Street and six months after opening was named the ‘Best New Restaurant in Great Britain’ at The Observer Food Monthly Awards. There are currently 37 Leon stores with plans to open more worldwide. Leon has also produced a series of cookbooks with a focus on seasonal, fresh and naturally fast food.
