Book Description

April 2009
Pure. Simple. Fresh.
 
This is the mantra of award-winning cookbook author Diana Henry. With a few core ingredients in your cupboard, you can transform humble staples, such as sausages, potatoes, and summer berries, into something special. Henry shows busy home cooks how to make no-fuss meals with an appealing mix of recipes inspired by her travels in southern France, Scandinavia, Italy, North Africa, Greece, and other regions.
 
More than 150 foolproof recipes, such as Pacific Lime Chicken, Seared Tuna with Avocado Salsa, Zucchini with Ricotta, Mint, and Basil, and Grilled Apricots with Blackberries and Mascarpone, offer casual but memorable dishes for creating convenient weeknight meals or entertaining friends on weekends. Fruit and vegetable recipes are organized seasonally, making it easy to feature fresh produce in your cooking.
 
With its relaxed approach to making dinner accessible and inspiring, Pure Simple Cooking embraces the truth that good food is often best cooked simply.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure simple pain! 7 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
I made the mistake of asking for this book for Christmas and was very disappointed to find it was an American edition. The one to go for is "Cook Simple, Effortless Cooking Every Day", the British version. Recipes are fab and use the book all the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Have I been missold? 6 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
This beautiful book is an American editions, so BEWARE! All the measurements are American and coriander is cilantro etc. It is very hard to convert accurately and one really does run the risk of messing up the recipes. I can see no indication whatsoeverfrom the website that it is an American edition. Trying to take the matter up with Customer service was very hard. I have been offered a refund but, as yet, nobody will admit any obfuscation. The email I received said that my copy could not be exchanged for one with English measurements because it "is one of the many we received from our Vendor" . I shall pursue the matter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unfair to.. 2 Sep 2012
By Wil Andersen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
..only give one star to a cookery book because Amazon failed to make explicit it was an American edition (and what's wrong with that anyway? - a quarter of my cookery books are US and I use them as much as the UK ones). The publisher should have been a giveaway.

Anyway, this is an excellent book and I recommend it highly - so do not be put off by the dismissive reviews. I am sure you are bright enough to know what cilantro is.
