Daily Mail's Cookery Books of the Year

Delicious.magazine's Best Cookbooks of the Year
"Her most simply satisfying book yet? A must-own." - Delicious.magazine
Diana Henry's favorite 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.
“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
