THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘For bung-it-in-the-oven cooks everywhere, this is a must-have book: Diana Henry has a genius for flavour.’ – Nigella Lawson

Whether you’re short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven to the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food.

Diana Henry’s favourite way to cook is to throw ingredients into a dish or roasting tin, slide them in the oven and let the heat behind that closed door transform them into golden, burnished meals. Most of the easy-going recipes in this wonderfully varied collection are cooked in one dish; some are ideas for simple accompaniments that can be cooked on another shelf at the same time.

From quick after-work suppers to feasts for friends, the dishes are vibrant and modern and focus on grains, pulses and vegetables as much as meat and fish. With recipes such as Chicken Thighs with Miso, Sweet Potatoes & Spring Onions, Roast Indian-spiced Vegetables with Lime-Coriander Butter, and Roast Stone Fruit with Almond and Orange Flower Crumbs, Diana shows how the oven is the most useful bit of kit you have in your kitchen.

Praise for How to Eat a Peach:

‘This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. I couldn’t love anyone who didn’t love this book.’ – Nigella Lawson

‘…her best yet…superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance’ – Financial Times

Simple easy to read recipes and great photos. I am a big fan of Diana. Her recipes are always flavoursome. This one looks no different.

Superb, easy, flavourful meals with a good variety of ingredients I had heard a lot of good things about this author but had not purchased or cooked from any of her other books. I took a chance on this one as I was looking for a book on mostly one pot meals that are good for the autumn/winter season. I wanted some new ideas that are simple enough to do during the week but did not compromise on flavour. Boy did I get what I was looking for! I am absolutely in love with this book. I have made about 8 recipes so far and everything has been packed full of…
