Thrust this book into the hands of anyone who thinks they can’t cook’ – the Sunday Times

Diana Henry shows you how to turn everyday ingredients into something special with the minimum of effort. Cook Simple is packed with over 150 recipes and ideas – many of which Diana has harvested from her world travels – that offer simple ways to make every meal spectacular.

Diana dedicates a chapter to each of 12 everyday ingredient groups: chicken, chops, sausages, leg of lamb, fish, leaves, summer veg, winter veg, pasta, summer fruit, winter fruit, flour and eggs. Each recipe takes only minutes to prepare with ingredients easily sourced from your local supermarket.

Features stunning pictures by award-winning photographer Jonathan Lovekin.
