Diana Henry


EYB has a complete recipe index of all Diana Henry's recipes - from her cookbooks, newspaper articles, magazines and her own site. View here.

Diana has been The Sunday Telegraph’s food writer – her column is in the paper’s magazine, Stella – for the last 10 years, and also contributes to House & Garden, Country Living, Saga and Red magazines. Sometimes you can hear her on Radio 4 (usually on ‘Woman’s Hour’) and she was a co-presenter on ‘Market Kitchen’ on UKtv.

Her first book, Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons, was shortlisted for a Glenfiddich Award for best cookbook. Her sixth book, Food From Plenty was shortlisted for both the André Simon Award and the Guild of Food Writers Award for Cookbook of the Year. Her seventh book, Salt Sugar Smoke was shortlisted for the Fortnum & Mason Award and The Guild of Food Writers Award for Cookbook of the Year.

Fortnum & Mason named her Food Writer of the Year in 2013 and the Guild of Food Writers have named her Cookery Journalist of the Year twice.

Before writing about food, which she started after she had her first child, she was a television producer for the BBC and, later, independent companies, making programmes for Channel 4. She worked on many of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s cookery series, but mostly made human interest and arts documentaries.

When she's not cooking she's reading – she loves literature almost as much as food – and looking after her children and partner. She lives in London, but was born and brought up in Northern Ireland.
