Delicious.magazine's Best Cookbooks of the Year
'Her most simply satisfying book yet? A must-own.' - Delicious.magazine
Whether you're short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven to the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food.
'I'm not quite sure how Diana Henry does it but every book she writes is a winner; practical, enticing and evocative. And the recipes always work. This one may seem as simple as it gets (one-pot or tray cooking) but it never ceases to delight.' - Tom Parker Bowles, the Mail on Sunday
Diana Henry's favourite way to cook is to throw ingredients into a dish or roasting tin, slide them in the oven and let the heat behind that closed door transform them into golden, burnished meals. Most of the easy-going recipes in this wonderfully varied collection are cooked in one dish; some are ideas for simple accompaniments that can be cooked on another shelf at the same time.
From quick after-work suppers to feasts for friends, the dishes are vibrant and modern and focus on grains, pulses and vegetables as much as meat and fish. With recipes such as Chicken Thighs with Miso, Sweet Potatoes & Spring Onions, Roast Indian-spiced Vegetables with Lime-Coriander Butter, and Roast Stone Fruit with Almond and Orange Flower Crumbs, Diana shows how the oven is the most useful bit of kit you have in your kitchen.
