Overview

'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 When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper) in which she wrote up the meals she wanted to cook. She kept this book for years. Putting a menu together is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus aren't just groups of dishes that have to work on a practical level (meals that cooks can manage), they also have to work as a succession of flavours. But what is perhaps most special about them is the way they can create very different moods - menus can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They are a way of visiting places you've never seen, revisiting places you love and celebrating particular seasons. HOW TO EAT A PEACH contains many of Diana's favourite dishes in menus that will take you through the year and to different parts of the world.

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! * Good Housekeeping 'Favourite Reads to Gift' * ...enchanting, evocative menus. * iPaper * A life-enhancing book * The London Evening Standard 'Best Cookbooks To Buy This Christmas' * The stories associated with the meals are what draw you in. * The Herald 'The Year's Best Food Books' * 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 Independent 'Best Books of the Year' * 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. * Tom Parker Bowles, The Mail on Sunday 'Essential Cookbooks Published This Year' * Any book from Diana Henry is a joy and this canny collection of menus and stories is no exception. * delicious. magazine 'Top 10 Food Books of 2018' * The recipes are superb but, above all, Diana writes like a dream * Daily Mail * ..her best yet...superb menus evoking place and occasion with consummate elegance * Financial Times * 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. * The Times 'Best Books of the Year' * Diana Henry's How to Eat a Peach is as elegant and sparkling as a bellini. * The Guardian 'Books of the Year' * 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 * A Masterpiece * Bee Wilson, The Sunday Times * 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. * Ed Smith, Rocket and Squash 'Books Ideas for Christmas 2018' * 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. * Lovefood.com `Ultimate Food-lovers' Christmas Gift Guide' * Her writing is incredibly vivid: her anecdotes invite you to sit down at the table with her and taste the flavours she describes. * The Culture Whisperer 'Best Books To Gift' *
