Last week I shared a guest recipe for Diana Henry’s orange and pomegranate cake, which I was pleased to see was a really big hit with lots of you over the weekend. As mentioned, I’ve really been enjoying cooking from Diana’s latest book A Change of Appetite, which is packed full of lighter, vegetable, fish and grain-based dishes, with influences from Cambodia, North Africa, Peru, India and the Middle East.
If this book sounds like something you’d enjoy, I also have two additional copies of the book to giveaway. So, here’s your chance to enter and win a copy of your own.
Here’s how to enter:
A Change of Appetite by Diana Henry is published by Mitchell Beazley/Octopus Publishing Group RRP £25. I have two additional copies in hand and will be responsible for posting them out to the winners. Cover image courtesy of the publisher.
