Diana Henry stands in the pantheon of contemporary British food writers, along with the likes of Anna Jones, Nigel Slater, and Jamie Oliver. In her newest book, Simple (Mitchell Beazley, $32.99), Henry offers up a collection of modest and yet flavorful recipes that you can make with what’s already in your kitchen. With sections like eggs, toasts, sausages and chops, the book focuses on getting an inspired and elegant dinner on the table quickly and without fuss. Henry also does that wonderful British thing of pulling flavors from around the world, as in her recipes for Burmese Chicken with Tart Chili Sauce, Turkish Pasta with Feta Yogurt and Dill, and Baked Sweet Potato with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Eggs. Simple is a book for anyone who relishes time in the kitchen and especially for those who have precious little of it to spend there.
