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)

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

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)

Those I have tried include:
Teriyaki salmon with pickled vegetables and sesame seed (now a favourite in our household)
Japanese ginger and garlic chicken with smashed cucumber (ditto - and party fare for my daughter)
Nectarine, tomato and basil salad with torn mozzarella (I thought this would be dull - an odd mix- I was so wrong - my note in book says 'unbeatable')
Goat cheese and cherry salad with almond and basil germinate
Seared tuna with chilli and peanut dressingSkewered chicken with lime, chilli and mint salad
Carrot, cabbage and apple salad - my notes say 'fab'
Chicken and pumpkin with soy and star anise - my husband made this one and it was fantastic.
Spiced pork chops with ginger and mango relish
Soy mushrooms with egg ribbons and black sesame
Quinoa, black lentil, mango and smoked chicken with korma dressing - again made by my husband. The dressing in particular is wow. Our locally bought chicken was a bit over-smoked so next time will try with the non smoked variety - or perhaps with smoked tofu. But a delicious plateful.
Carrot and mooli salad with peanut chilli dressing - although there was a lot of prep, the flavours were fantastic.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
