Cooking from Diana Henry's Books

A work colleague met her recently after she'd been on a radio programme. She's lovely apparently, very Irish and down to earth.

What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? April 2014 edition!

I just got Change of Appetite and made my first thing from it last night, which was absolutely delicious. I'll say more on the DH thread.

The book I'm really looking forward to isn't out yet I don't think. It's called Honey & Co, from the restaurant of the same name, which I really recommend. They're ex-ottolenghi.

I don't feel the need to own any Mary Berry books, but she's incredibly popular because of the Great British Bake Off.

BC - the book I'd really recommend you look at is Mange Tout by Bruno Loubet. I've drastically cut back on cookbook purchases recently but got this for my kindle/ iPad.

I ordered the book nearly a month ago now and it never arrived. Grrr. Had to wait until the 14th to claim a refund, so have now re-ordered and hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.

Marble Arch questions (also Cambridge and Salisbury)

There's also a Vinoteca on Seymour Place which is quite good. On Crawford St, you have the Duke of Wellington gastropub.

What should I eat in London that I cannot get in LA?

I think you mean beef dripping, not suet.

Help! I need help to find a few reasonable restaurants for my in-laws when they visit London, please!

What's their budget?

Is Yotam Ottolenghi's "Plenty" a Failure?

It's 200 celsius, not farenheit.

COTM April 2014 Announcement Thread: Congratulations Pok Pok!

Am debating whether to buy this book as I already have a couple of other Thai books (including David Thompson's Thai Food on long term loan from a friend). Any views from those who own both?

Any good S Asian and Malaysian –Camden, London?

Just come back from Malaysia where the food was almost universally great. Where should I get my fix in Paddington?

Is it a sub for an Asian chilli? I''d have far more luck finding Asian chillis tbh than Mexican.

Cooking from Pok Pok

Beef or chicken is the norm in Malaysia, because it's a Muslim country.

Dipping my toe back in the water after three weeks in Singapore and Malaysia. The food has been so amazing I'll definitely be craving some Asian flavours when I get back to London on Monday (sob). Thanks for the links.

Have you tried Bravi Ragazzi yet in Streatham? Very good pizza, imho.

To be fair, he does have a job - which involves shopping for ingredients in the afternoon and working from home!

Really? The standard English spelling is judgement and it looks weird to me without the "e". I suppose American English does sometimes take the (to me) archaic spelling. Sorry for grumpiness - I am a spelling Nazi!

It really annoys me that they spell "judgement" without the e, like it's Shakespeare or something.

There's also a book out in June from two ex-Ottolenghi chefs, who run one of my favourite restaurants in London, Honey & Co.

Churros are basically long, thin doughnuts, freshly made. I have happy memories of eating them with hot chocolate on my first, ever trip to Spain (and first foreign holiday), aged about 11.

Bloomsbury St. Pancras Resto Recs?

Oriental Dragon on Cleveland St. There's also Ragam on the same street which is supposed to be decent Indian but I haven't been.

Nominations for March 2014 Cookbook of the Month

I'm not nominating this month because I won't be able to participate, but I think many of you would love Mange Tout by Bruno Loubet. It's one of those exciting cookbooks where every recipe s just that little bit different. He's a French chef oh has spent time in Australia and now lives in London, where he has two restaurants.

I'm making a whole menu from his book tonight, so will report back.

I made her Christmas cake for the first time last year. It was hands-down the best one I've ever done and will be my go-to recipe from now on.

Nominations for March 2014 Cookbook of the Month

I'd love to do Diana Henry month, but I'm away for most of March (escaping the dreary weather at last - yay). Her new book is also out in March and I'll definitely be getting it as soon as I get back from my holiday.
