A Change of Appetite: Where delicious meets healthy (Hardcover)
James Beard Award Finalist
'Cookery Book of The Year' Guild of Food Writers Awards
Shortlisted for the André Simon Awards
What happened when one of today's best-loved food writers had a change of appetite? Here are the dishes that Diana Henry created when she started to crave a different kind of diet - less meat and heavy food, more vegetable-, fish- and grain-based dishes - often inspired by the food of the Middle East and Far East, but also drawing on cuisines from Georgia to Scandinavia.
Curious about what 'healthy eating' really means, and increasingly bombarded by both readers and friends for recipes that are 'good for you', Diana discovered a lighter, fresher way of eating. From a Cambodian salad of prawns, grapefruit, toasted coconut and mint or North African mackerel with cumin to blood orange and cardamom sorbet, the magical dishes in this book are bursting with flavor, goodness and color.
Peppering the recipes is Diana's inimitable writing on everything from the miracle of broth to the great carbohydrate debate. Above all, this is about opening up our palates to new possibilities. There is no austerity here, simply fabulous food which nourishes body and soul.
Diana Henry is the author of twelve books including: Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons; Roast Figs, Sugar Snow; Plenty; Salt, Sugar, Smoke; A Change of Appetite; A Bird in the Hand; Simple; How to Eat a Peach and From the Oven to the Table
