Her writing is incredibly vivid: her anecdotes invite you to sit down at the table with her and taste the flavours she describes.
The perfect book for anyone who loves hosting, How To Eat a Peach is a great reference for how to create amazing lunch and dinner party menus and is filled with Diana Henry's favourite dishes and recipes from around the world.
Diana Henry's How to Eat a Peach is the only book I managed to find time to write about. To be fair, I made the time to do that because it's a gem. In short, I think it's her best cookbook to date.
This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn't love anyone who didn't love this book.
Diana Henry's How to Eat a Peach is as elegant and sparkling as a bellini.
I adore Diana Henry's recipes - and this is a fantastic collection. They are simple, but also have a sense of occasion. The recipes come from all over the world and each menu has an evocative story to accompany it. Beautiful.
..her best yet...superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance
The recipes are superb but, above all, Diana writes like a dream
Any book from Diana Henry is a joy and this canny collection of menus and stories is no exception.
You can always rely on Diana Henry. Her prose is elegant and evocative, her recipes pure and delectably international. This is perhaps her best yet.
No one quite captures a place, a moment, a taste and a memory like she does. If you've been there before, you're transported back but if you haven't not to worry, she takes you there with her.
The stories associated with the meals are what draw you in.
A life-enhancing book
...enchanting, evocative menus.
One of my favourite food writers with a book of 25 themed menus that I can't wait to cook. This is top of my wish list!
