How to eat a peach by Diana Henry

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

A new Diana Henry book is an occasion…  Henry has perfect pitch when it comes to cooking – her recipes are never less than delicious.


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
