Revue de presse

'Diana Henry offers a charmingly personal take on exotic foods and dishes which have a touch of magic. Her passion is infectious and her recipes tantalizing.' --Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

'A glorious and magical feast for the senses' --Claudia Roden

Présentation de l'éditeur

Diana Henry s first book Crazy Water Pickled Lemons wowed critics, became an instant hit with foodies everywhere and has gone on to inspire a particular style of food publishing. The book is an exploration of magical dishes and exotic ingredients, from the lesser-explored areas of the Mediterranean, North Africa and the Middle East. Appearing in a new edition for 2012, Crazy Water Pickled Lemons is a classic that was shortlisted for the Glenfiddich Cookbook Award when it was first published.

Infused with richness, Crazy Water Pickled Lemons provides a spectacular feast for the senses, as the foods are colourful, aromatic, perfumed and exotic: ingredients that can be enjoyed in our imaginations as well as our mouths and foods that allow us to experience faraway places whilst remaining where we are.

All the recipes have an enchanting quality. There are foods whose poetry comes from their magical names or the stories behind them - such as Pearlfisher's Rice, a honey sweetened rice from Bahrain to be eaten with lamb, so called because its high sugar content was thought to help pearl divers stay under water for longer. Or a dessert called Ice in Heaven, a Middle Eastern milk pudding of rose perfumed ground rice. Then there are dishes which seem quite ordinary but in their cooking have undergone such an amazing transformation - that it s hard to understand how they work. Consider Middle Eastern Orange Cake, made with pureed whole, cooked oranges, mixed with eggs, sugar and flour and baked to citrussy moistness.

Crazy Water Pickled Lemon will bring an intoxicating whiff of the exotic to your table and pleasure to your kitchen.

I wanted to offer the book to a friend and found to my dismay, that it went completely out of print, not even available on Kindle.
The recipes are mouth watering, easy to follow and I loved all the stories Diana Henry told about the ingredients. Two little difficulties,
she uses cups not grams, but it is not too difficult to calculate. What is more difficult is, that the recipes are not in order of entrée, main and desert and sometimes it took me a bit of time to find the recipe I was looking for.

HASH(0x99cf77e0) étoiles sur 5 So Beautifully Written It Makes Your Mouth Water 23 janvier 2008

As a former culinary instructor and chef, I found this book amazing. Not laid out in the traditional fashion, the author takes each chapter to feature one or two ingredients from Middle East cookery, then describes them so beautifully. The information given at the beginning of each chapter is as delicious as the recipes!

HASH(0x99cf7a2c) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, but not out of reach... 30 décembre 2007
Par Sara Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this book straightaway after thumbing through it. It is what some modern foodies would call pure food porn: there are gorgeous pictures and stories to go with the recipes. One thing I particularly like is that Ms. Henry includes recipes for the condiments such as for preserved lemons and harissa. These items simply aren't available where I live, but I can make them myself for use in the recipes. She also offers reasonable alternatives for many hard-to-find items such as apples or pears for quinces and grape juice/balsamic vinegar mix for grape saba. As another reviewer said, it is not organized in military fashion, but I read cookbooks for fun, so that is no nevermind to me. The comments on the "odd" typeface elude me--I find nothing wrong with it,as it seems no different from other modern cookbook formats. This is a fun overview cookbook for mediterranean cooking that is a good place for new cooks to start exploring these food genres. For the experienced cook it is a fun read and has some off the beaten track recipes.

I have had this book for years and have made several recipes from it. Yes, some of them are a bit involved, but for a special meal, they make the whole experience of creating the dish special.

HASH(0x99cf7e10) étoiles sur 5 A cooks delight-for those who appreciate great food!! 23 octobre 2010
Par jj foodie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the most beautiful cookbook! It was given to me as a gift and i have cooked about half the dishes in it. I have never ever tried a dish without being blown away by how amazing the flavours are. No matter how strange the combination of ingredients may sound, everytime it is superb (the rosemary lemon cake is to die for). The way it is arranged by ingredients as opposed to "salads" "main course" etc. is what makes this such a delightful book. There are millions of books out there that are divided like that-if that is what you are after then get an A-Z of cooking. Instead, Henry divides into groups, sweet, citrus, fruits of longing (fig, pomegranate and all the exotic like) and has recipes that revolve around this theme. This encourages you to think about how to use ingredients in both sweet and savoury ways. It is for the cook who is interested in trying something a little different, however all the recipes are easy enough for anyone who has a reasonable understanding of cooking.I prefer cookbooks that involve you in all aspects as opposed to how to cook something in 10 minutes. Crazy water pickled lemon does just that, with beautiful introductions explaining how the recipes made it into the book. A fantastic buy for the cook who wants to create beautiful dishes.

HASH(0x99cf8204) étoiles sur 5 An excellent cookbook for Middle Eastern Cookery virgins 2 décembre 2013
Par Wild Thing Foodie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Fortunately I discovered this writer when one of her cookbooks, Plenty, was greatly reduced. I immediately borrowed or bought her other ones. For the reasons that other reviewers have deducted stars, I have added them. Her layouts make sense - and her words inform and inspire to try it and her recipes work. Artistically, the photographs work well and transports me on this particular culinary journey. Her recipes for ice cream(raisin and sherry or lemon and basil) do not require an ice cream maker! I wish that I had bought this cookbook first - as my introduction to Middle Eastern flavours and cookery. Honestly, I have not cooked from any of my Claudia Roden or Paula Wolfert cookbooks on the same subject. Ms. Henry takes all fear out of cooking. This cookbook compliments my three Ottolenghi ones.
