From The Oven To The Table

Diana Henry, hardback

£25.00

Whether you’re short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food. Diana Henry’s favourite way to cook is to throw ingredients into a dish or roasting tin, mslide them into 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.
