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.

Industry Reviews

'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

Excellent... buy with confidence


Excellent book.. as all her books are. Bird in the Hand is used all the time, and I am sure this one ( although more diverse) will take its place.
