More About A Change of Appetite by Diana Henry
 
 
 
Overview

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.

In her eighth book (after Salt Sugar Smoke; Gastropub Cookbook), Henry tries to dramatically change her own diet after having “a change of appetite.” Focusing on vegetable-, fish-, and grain-based dishes, she minimizes the heavy food, like meat, that could weigh a person down. Drawing influence from around the world, Henry creates flavorful dishes that won’t force eaters to sit and wait for their stomach to settle. With classical dishes from the Middle East and Far East, like “Japanese family chicken, egg, and rice bowl (oyaka domburi)” and “persimmon, pomegranate, and red Belgian endive salad with goat cheese and toasted hazelnuts,” and more Western dishes like a salmon burger with dill and tomato sauce or a salmon tartare with pickled cucumber and rye crackers, there is a taste here for everyone. Broken down by season, the book offers a nice mix of food from around the world that will not take a toll on the digestive system. (June)
