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.

In her year of good eating, Diana lost weight, but this was about much more than weight loss - lead by taste, it was about discovering a healthier, fresher way of eating. From a Cambodian salad of shrimps, 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, with goodness and with 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 that nourishes body and soul.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This book teaches how to be more creative With this book I realized everything goes....so I started to use not the same recipes but what I already have at home and combine it into delicious meals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful book but not cookable I bought this book because it's beautiful, and I had hoped it would help me bring more seasonal cooking into my repertoire. Unfortunately almost all the recipes in here just seem, well, weird, and hard to cook. The ingredients are difficult to find and many of the recipes don't seem like they would be to my tastes. Granted I like simple food, and have never been to a Michelin-starred restaurant in my life, but this just wasn't for me. That being said, as a coffee-table book it's magnificent, it's got beautiful photos, interesting stories, and the book itself is very well-made with lovely paper and a beautiful cover, so I do not regret purchasing it.
