Here's an easy prediction. The new tie-up between fast food chain LEON and Gizzi Erskine will be a runaway success. Launching next week, the chef and food writer Gizzi will showcase the dish she created - the Chicken Satay Salad costs £6.45. It was inspired by her cookbook Gizzi's Healthy Appetite and consists of sweet potato, carrot and daikon spiralised salad, topped with LEON’s chargrilled chicken and finished with a punchy pot of satay sauce with a sprinkling of toasted seeds.
Sounds like Gizzi enjoyed the challenge too: "There have been so many unexpected obstacles – from sourcing affordable ingredients without compromising quality, to making the method simple enough to serve the dish within thirty seconds across thirty-eight stores," she explains. And look out for more collaborations between the chef and the chain later this year.
