More About the Author

"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 Spectator

If your kitchen doesn't yet include a Diana Henry title - you don't yet know what you're missing. Her first book 'Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons' (first published in 2002) set the tone for the genre. Her passion for food is undeniable and her amazing writing makes even the most exotic of recipes simple to make and understand.

Best known as the food writer for the Sunday Telegraph, Diana Henry has twice been named Cookery Writer of the Year by the Guild of Food Writers in 2007 and 2009. She is the author of six books including the much acclaimed 'Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons' which was shortlisted for a Glenfiddich Award for best cookbook. Her other titles include 'Roast Figs, Sugar Snow', 'The Gastropub Cookbook', 'Cook Simple', 'Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons' and 'Food from Plenty' which has been shortlisted for Food book of the Year by the Andre Simon Awards. She is a contributor to many magazines including Red, House and Garden, Sainsbury's Magazine and Waitrose Kitchen.

Diana Henry's passion is infectious and her recipes tantalising. (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall)

There are just so many recipes I long to try out - my copy is littered with post-its. (Nigella Lawson on Salt, Sugar, Smoke)

Everything Diana Henry cooks I want to eat. (Yotam Ottolenghi)

Can't wait to cook from it (reading this in bed this arvo). (Nigella Lawson (tweeted on receiving her copy))

As ever, her recipes are gorgeously greed-inducing, and the feel of the book - the beauty of its photographs should be mentioned here - is calmly but gloriously uplifting. (Nigella Lawson)

Absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring! (Jack Monroe (author of A Girl Called Jack))

A committed pleasure-monger, turning out really good recipes that scream to be made over and over again. (Emma Sturgess Metro)

This is the cookbook we have all been waiting for. (Eat Travel Live Magazine)

Our favourite food book so far this year. (Foodepedia)

It's obvious which cookbooks are the most used on my kitchen shelf. Dog-eared and besmattered, they include all that Diana Henry has ever written. (The Sunday Telegraph)

Diana meets the challenge of improving your diet without sacrificing flavour. (BBC Good Food Magazine)

Share with good friends. (Country & Town House)

I'm dedicating this month to following as many of her recipes as possible. (Psychologies)

Deliciously Healthy! (The Mail on Sunday YOU)

This is good food for people who love eating. (Saga)

With nods to the Middle East, Thailand and Japan, her delicate, fragrant dishes are just what we're craving. (Red)

Once in a while a cookbook comes along that has you drooling long before you actually cook anything from it. (A Little Bird)

[Diana Henry's] been on a mission to seek out food that's good for you but doesn't involve denial, smug abstinence or (natural consequence of both) gloom. The results are light, fresh and full of flavour. (Karen Barnes, Editor Delicious)

Henry's passion for food, as well as a considerable amount of research, shines through this book, which provides ample inspiration for a healthy menu with a difference. (Neil Gerrard Caterer & Hotelkeeper)

One of the best flavour queens out there... the recipes are invigorating and lovely. (Bath Chronicle)

Who says vegetables are boring? Diana Henry scoured the world for recipes that are 'good for you' but don't skimp in flavour. (The Times)

Proof that healthy eating can be tasty too.

(Time Out picks for 2014)

As featured in Best Food Books 2014 (The Week)

In every one I tried, the flavors sparkled, the colors on the plate glowed, the dishes truly satisfied. (The New York Times)

I have been a fan of Diana Henry for a long time, but she really has surpassed herself with this book. In the introduction she outlines her approach to eating and how it had changed over the years. She lists her bibliography at the end of the book and I wasn't too surprised to see that I have shared much of the research she has undertaken - like Diana Henry, I avoid sugar and processed foods. She says 'the best thing you can do for good health is to eat proper home-cooked food, limit anything processed, really keep an eye on refined carbohydrates (especially sugar), switch to whole grains for at least some meals and up your vegetable intake.'

However, the key thing is that she's put together a book of recipes where the food naturally follows these principles and that food is completely delicious. As she says, this is not a book of deprivation or crankiness. These are dishes that are perhaps 'accidentally healthy' whilst being delicious. Diana Henry says that she has been heavily influenced by Middle Eastern food and also plundered the cuisines of Japan, Thailand and Vietnam.

I had this book on pre-order as I am such as fan of Diana Henry's other books and I see that the copy I was sent has its sub title inverted - mine says 'where healthy meets delicious' and the link takes you to one saying 'where delicious meets healthy' - both are correct, however you want to say it!

If there is a criticism I have of the book is that the recipes and menus aren't listed in the table of contents - yes they're in the index and, yes, I like the seasonal themed approach, but it would have been nice to be able to run your eyes down the list of spring recipes, for example, now that the sun has come out and I fancy something light and flavourful.

Anything by Diana Henry is brilliant and this is no exception. Really well researched recipes beautifully illustrated as always....buy, buy, buy..... (However don't expect a book of real low calorie cooking, it does use sugar and give recipes for cakes etc. - it's just slightly less indulgent than some of her other books). If you like this try Roast Figs, Sugar Snow, or my favourite Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons

Diana Henry is literally in a different league. As someone who owns more than 600 cookbooks, cooks on a daily basis and reads cookbooks the way other people read novels, I can say with confidence that this is a most unique cookbook. The diversity of the recipes and the scope of this book are truly breathtaking. She has researched her subject extensively and it shows. Many people can write a cookbook, a select few can write a cookbook anywhere close to this one. If all cookbooks were like this one, a serious cook would only need a handful. I am sure I will be cooking from it for years to come.

I got this book last week and decided to cook two dishes from it, for friends, for lunch on Saturday. I made the Persian Saffron and Mint Chicken with Spring Couscous (with a yogurt sauce) and the Mandalay Carrot Salad. They weren't within the same seasonal chapter but they went beautifully together. I'm a slow cook and I have to read the recipe over and over again to make sure I haven't gone off course, so it took me a while to prepare the lunch as there was a fair bit of chopping and prepping (and I had help from one of my friends), but it was more than worth it when we came to sit down and eat it (and actually, very enjoyable to take the time). The flavours and textures of the food were not only delicious but so cleverly thought out.

Having read Diana's introduction, which seems to be written directly to me (i.e., want to eat better, but first and foremost, want the food to be delicious, not cranky healthy and brown), I too now want to undergo a 'Change of Appetite' - if I can eat this well and for it to happen to be good for me too - why not? Life is too short to eat cardboard.

P.S I forgot to mention that my friend made the Orange and Pomegranate cake for that lunch. There wasn't a crumb or pomegranate seed left.

Diana'a recipes in the Telegraph are amongst my favourite, full or orginality and wit. The book is an extension of her articles. I've always been into healthy eating and none of the ingredients were revelatory. What for me was so good was that the food was so elegant, simple and edible to other members of my family that arent so into health... which is everyone else...

The Pistachio and Lemon Cake, made with olive oil and pistachios (no flour) was a real highlight. I'm making it at Pesach.

That said, every page is a highlight - delicious and requiring little cheffy skill just good ingredients and a basic ability in making buttermilk. The suppliers she recommended were good too. I actually started using Healthy Suppliers, because even though I live in London, I hate shopping and the on-line store had a great range of stuff.

(NB
I read the Telegraph, which in spite of my left wing views, is the only newspaper that seems well-written/ inc. FT Weekend (gosh so middle aged!) .

Out of the great many cookbooks I have purchased over the years, this one is stunning! Every dish I have made from it has been outstanding. The flavours, the colours and the textures are incredible! I cannot speak highly enough of this book and cannot believe the less favourable reviews here.
Yes some of the ingredients may not be on your weekly shopping list but a trip to a good Sainsburys, a Waitrose or local ethnic store usually does the trick. The recipes are easy to follow and just require a little time.

This book is perfect as a gift for a foodie. It's brilliant for using when you are entertaining friends for dinner. You will be proud of cooking anything from this book!

The Spiced Pork Chops with Ginger and Mango Relish is to die for. I served it with the Spiced Carrot, Date and Sesame Salad - divine!

Try the Indian Spiced Beetroot, Pumpkin and Spinach topped with yoghurt, freshly grated coconut and lime juice. Amazing! And!!! Totally healthy.
If you love cooking. You'll love this book!
