diana henryNo-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.

This is everything I want from a cookbook: inspiration, intelligent company, great good-mood food, and beautiful writing.Nigella Lawson
