Leos are warm-hearted, passionate and love to be in the limelight – they make great performers and love to put on a show. Often thought to be flamboyant party people Leos are known for their energy and optimism. If you hang out with a Leo you’ll know that they can be opinionated and even a bit egotistical at times.

What’s Leo’s food personality?
To suit their dramatic leanings, Leo people love a meal to become an occasion. Memories are very important to Leos and so if you want to capture their heart and imagination, create a show-stopping meal they will always remember.
If you’re cooking for a Leo, offer them strong flavours and rich ingredients. They’re known for being generous, but not necessarily great at sharing (that ego gets in the way) so avoid small plates and sharing platters. Instead create an impression of lavish abundance by serving food that your Leo can help themselves to.
Leos are kind and big-hearted – happiest at the centre of things, Leo people make great hosts. If you’re fortunate enough to have a Leo in your life look forward to enjoying their hospitality and the excitement they often create.
