'This is an extraordinary piece of food writing, pitch perfect in every way. ' - Nigella Lawson

‘This is a book of menus – collections of dishes that flow and are balanced and whose flavours work together,’ writes Diana Henry. ‘But it is a book about the magic of conjuring up place through food too.’

From her early childhood habit of recording delicious recipes in exercise books, How to Eat a Peach is the supreme fusion of taste and memory. This is food to take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul.

Over several unmissable volumes (including the bestselling Simple), Diana Henry has established herself as one of Britain’s leading food writers, hoovering up awards and accolades as she goes. How to Eat a Peach is a luxuriant, foodie paradise, as beautifully written as the results it promises.
