Thanks to the enthusiasm several Chowhounds have expressed for British Author Diana Henry's cookbooks, it seems like a good idea to have a thread where we can share our experiences of cooking from her approachable, appealing books.
I hope you'll join me in reporting on how things go from these books (to date):
*Food from Plenty/Plenty: Good Food Made from the Plentiful, the Seasonal and the Leftover with Over 300 Recipes, None of Them Extravagant
*Cook Simple/Pure Simple Cooking: Effortless Meals Every Day
*Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons: Enchanting Dishes from the Middle East, Mediterranean and North Africa
*Roast Figs, Sugar Snow: Food to Warm the Soul
*The Gastropub Cookbook
*Salt Sugar Smoke: How to Preserve Fruit, Vegetables, Meat and Fish: The Definitive Guide to Conserving, from Jams and Jellies to Smoking and Curing
