Editorial Reviews

Review

Yotam Ottolenghi "Plenty More" and Diana Henry's "A Change of Appetite" indicate that British cooks may have surpassed us with their inventive flavor combinations and adoption of international ingredients.―Melissa Clark, The New York Times

Her book is full of bright ideas, as well as one of the most thoughtful directions ever written by a British chef for an American audience, appended to her recipe for salmon grilled in damp newspaper with dill and cucumber sauce. "Directions to use a broadsheet newspaper are because of size, not the content of the newspaper," she writes. "USA Today is a national newspaper that is the right size.

New York Times Book Review

This is a really, really good cookbook. Really. If you're a cook with some ability and an affinity for simply prepared, boldly flavored food, this should be on your cookbook shelf. The fact that it also happens to be fantastically healthy and a decent roadmap to a way of eating that will result in lower weight and better health is gravy....well, maybe a light viniagrette, come to think.

As I said, these are simple, rustic dishes with big flavors and not a lot of screwing around. Just about any home cook with a decent mastery of technique could cook anything in this book without worry. There's a lot of Mediterranean and east Asian influence here, with a few detours through southeast Asia and Scandanavia (!) for variety. The ingredients shouldn't be hard to find in most decent-size cities with a good supermarket, but you may not have heard of a few and some may require a bit of searching in the ethnic foods aisle or at Whole Foods. Don't panic; they're all tasty. There's a fair number of vegetarian and fish-centric entrees, and when meat is called for it's often used in conjunction with other ingredients. Red meat shows up, but not often, and usually in moderation. These centerpieces tend to get big shots of ginger, garlic, chile, and herbs, and often feature a mix of textures and temperatures. Fans of soft, bland food, beware.

I was especially appreciative of the fact that there's food for all meals here - solid, tasty breakfasts, quick lunches and light dinners, a few big celebratory meals, and lots of light dinners. Most recipes have taken me about 30-40 minutes of active cooking time, with 20-30 minutes of cooking when I could do something else - maybe an hour or so all told, a few more, many less.

I have been and am considering whether to buy this book. The low number of reviews and their lack of detail made me think, "no, this is not a book for me." Then I went to Amazon's UK store (a link is at the bottom of the page) and found 31! And most of these were highly positive, well written with info on specific recipes, and how they were received. So, if you are sitting on the fence, not sure what to think or do, take a look at the reviews on the British site before making a decision.

P.S. I really think Amazon should cross-list them.

Look out Ottolenghi, there's a new cookbook in town.

I just received my copy of A Change of Appetite and I am in love.

I think it was personally written just for me.
Ms. Henry talks about "dieting" and the myths that go with it. Just eat healthy and stay away from refined sugar.

I can't wait to try everything in this book.......it's a mix of Ottolenghi's books and a bit of Nigel Slater thrown in.
Gorgeous photos too........

I am making the Persian salad tomorrow w/ the fresh herbs and radishes in my garden.
It's my new favorite cookbook.

There is not a single recipe that i have made that my family hasn't raved over- it's a great series of recipes with simple instructions. Love cooking with farro- nice change from the rice dishes. Ingredients easily found in the local grocers ( ok- in the Berkeley Bowl- not your usual grocers). I am going to buy a few more copies and give as holiday gifts- an excellent companion to Ottolenghi's books. Just different enough for a nice change. I can highly recommend this cookbook.

This book is as stunning inside as it looks from the outside. Beautiful typography and page layout, photographs that leave you wanting to make each recipe ASAP, and most importantly, the recipes that I have tried thus far (five of them) were all worthy of high praise. I've made two of them more than once already, because they are that good. The husband who is not an adventurous eater, has loved every one so far as well.

The recipes are completely approachable for a non-professional cook, and don't take hours of prep time or a cart full of ingredients to execute. Wonderful!

My one and only thing that I can say could be improved, and this is just a huge personal preference really hence why I am not going to take away a star for it, is that I wish every recipe had a picture. Pictures for each recipe not only helps sell me on trying it, but is a visual guide for the visually dependent home cook that I am, where I feel most confident knowing what it should look like and be plated as, when completed.

I am so impressed with this cookbook that I will be giving it as a gift to several people this holiday season. It feels like a gift, not only each time I make a delicious recipe, but in it's overall feeling special as well.

I love to cook! AS a cookbook collector my bookshelves are getting overcrowded so when I purchase a new book I am looking for something
that will add to my knowledge. Cooking clean, light and delicious is a top priority and this book gives me recipes that do not taste like grouts n' oats.
A Change of Appetite is gourmet but surprising simple and Dianna has an excellent palate and is the perfect follow up to Chef Ottolenghi recipes.
