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.

Love this cookbook. Sorry others found the ingredients esoteric. Didn't find ingredients hard to find here in Brooklyn. Enjoyed the recipes I cooked.

Not for inexperienced or timid cooks but the flavors are delicious

Pretty book. I like the layout. Didn't find much useful with the recipes though. Disappointing, because I'm almost always able to find something worthy of 'tweaking' to adapt it to my needs. This one, not so much.

The photos were great though! I also liked the fact that the book was well constructed--so hard to find these days, especially w/cookbooks.

The ingredients in many of the recipes seemed to be potentially difficult to obtain; but, there were some Spring recipes that I would really like to try. The recipes come from many countries of origin.
