Diana Henry, author of eight books and a real star of the culinary scene, was at Forum Books in Corbridge recently to present her new book, A Change of Appetite – the result of her journey into a different kind of diet; less meat and heavy food, more vegetables, fish and grain-based dishes, inspired by her travels all over the world.
There is no austerity here, just lots of big flavours such as chilli, ginger and lime, “the kind of thing you want when you aren’t eating starchy or rich food” says Diana. “It’s food that makes you feel revitalised and energetic and “deprivation is not on the menu.”
Helen Stanton at Forum Books in Corbridge runs a regular cook book club, where members bring along a dish they’ve cooked from a nominated book. For info, go to www.forumbooks.co.uk or contact Helen via Twitter @Forumbooks
