Leaf is a celebration of edible leaves in all their versatility. Purely in terms of flavour, they offer immense variety—bitterness, pungency, pepper, citrus, sweetness. And visually leaves are a riot of colour and texture—from the palest shades of white and yellow, through to the deepest, darkest greens, via rich purples, reds and pinks.

They range from the tiniest of micro herbs to huge elephant ears, a meal in a leaf.
