I still – certainly during the week – like to cook food which doesn’t take too much hands-on time and still bung a lot of dishes in the oven. But my life has changed… So I felt it was time for a follow up to Cook Simple, time to offer a new collection of simple dishes that use a wider range of techniques.
No-one is better than Diana Henry at turning the everyday into something special.
Here is a superb collection of recipes that you can rustle up with absolutely no fuss, but which will knock your socks off with their flavour. Peppered throughout the book are ingenious ideas such as no-hassle starters and sauces that will lift any dish.
From Turkish Pasta with Caramelized Onions, Yoghurt and Dill and Paprika-baked Pork Chops with Beetroot, Caraway and Sour Cream to Parmesan-roasted Cauliflower with Garlic and Thyme, Diana takes the kind of ingredients we are most likely to find in our cupboard and fridge – or be able to pick up on the way home from work – and provides recipes that will become your friends for life.
