Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An everyday cookbook that expertly blends ease and style from one of the UK's leading food writers.

Whether deciding how to dress up a tub of ice cream or determining what fish to choose for a simple weeknight dinner, Diana Henry shows how to make each dish memorable. Her classic recipes focus on enhancing simple food with fresh ingredients and pantry staples, like Pear, Fig, and Prosciutto Salad with Pomegranates and Lamb Chops with Pea and Mint Puree. With an appealing mix of recipes from Provence, Italy, North Africa, Greece, and other regions, Henry celebrates the domestic while recognizing the need for streamlined, foolproof cooking techniques. She embraces the truth that good food is often best cooked simply.

"Diana Henry's passion is infectious and her recipes tantalizing." --Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, author of THE RIVER COTTAGE MEAT BOOK

"A new Diana Henry book is an occasion . . . Henry has perfect pitch when it comes to cooking--her recipes are never less than delicious." --The SpectatorReviews"Ideal for the novice home cook in need of a bit of encouragement in the kitchen."—Publishers Weekly 

Review:

"Most cookbooks start off with chapters dedicated to appetizers, soups or salads. Henry, food columnist for London's Sunday Telegraph magazine, cuts right to the heart of the matter — and the center of the plate — with sections devoted to chicken, chops, sausages, leg of lamb, fish and pasta. After all, the question 'what's for dinner?' is never answered with 'a platter of crudits.' Her latest collection of 150 recipes focuses on simple weeknight dishes, most of which can be prepared in under an hour and with only a handful of ingredients. Strong emphasis is placed on seasonal produce, with vegetable and fruit chapters broken down into 'spring and summer' or 'autumn and winter' categories. While Henry hails from Ireland and resides in London, her recipes reflect a distinct global influence: salmon ceviche garnished with mango and avocado; pork chops flavored with Thai spices and nam pla; and torrijas, the Spanish version of French toast. Endless variations for savory sauces, poultry stuffing, roasted potatoes and even whipped cream pepper the text, and many of the recipes contain footnotes offering simple substitutions. Even the baked desserts are streamlined, such as an all-in-one chocolate cake that employs self-rising flour and salted butter and is mixed entirely in the food processor. One hundred sumptuous, full-color photographs serve as both illustration and inspiration, making this reasonably priced title ideal for the novice home cook in need of a bit of encouragement in the kitchen."
