The stuffing was not our favorite because of the sourdough, but next time will try a French or rustic bread. I get nervous about undercooked chicken juices so used Kenji Lopez’s method of putting stuffing in a cheese cloth, microwaving to 180 degrees, then stuffing the chicken. The rice was outstanding seasoned with cumin and coriander amongst other yummy things, as was the chicken and vegetables. But if you need to whip up something like, say, Poussins with Black Olive and Anchovy Butter in a jiffy then this book has got you covered. I cut the potatoes into chunks and parboiled them, then stuck them in the oven alone first (I don't like under-cooked potatoes).

In the British version of the recipe it's red peppers baked with the sweet potatoes and a green pepper in the mojo. Excellent photography, but a lot of it dark and moody (think fall and winter) with rough boards and primitive knives and forks and hearty dark meats and fruits. I can only get thin sausages, which definitely won't stand up to 1 hour of cooking time, so I skipped the browning step, and added them at the 20 minute mark with the tomatoes and cheese.There are dozens of intriguing recipes in this book, and I will be cooking out of it for some time to come. Made as written, the filling is quite rich but could easily be adjusted by adding sautéed mushrooms, spinach, or other veg to lighten it up. Whether you're short of time or just prefer to keep things simple, From the Oven to the Table shows how the oven can do much of the work that goes into making great food. Diana Henry's "cod with zesty crust" from Pure, Simple Cooking is a favorite and, I think better than this recipe.

Instead of sage butter, I made a paste of the sage, garlic and olive oil and rubbed it on the chicken and squash before baking. Even the boy enjoyed it, which is a huge deal as he had cross-country so was already not in the best of moods. Completely agree with all about the dressing - first, really difficult to get the miso to emulsify with the oil and having halved the amounts, it was still way too much and made the food feel oily.They remind me of the inside of a Dutch painting from the Golden Age, like a peasant or servant might at any moment be drawn into the picture. Henry is a well loved cook within this group, and while this book does seem to have a fair amount of failures to it's credit within the group's home cooks, everything that we have made out of it has been great. The shining star is Diana Henry's From the Oven to the Table , in which she faultlessly delivers highly achievable, boldly flavoured dishes. I made 2 versions, one with the sausage and one without, as my family contains vegetarians as well as omnivores. My husband was very sceptical about the ingredients combination beforehand but ended up really enjoying the dish.

Diana recommends covering in foil towards the end of cooking if honey starts to burn, this is a good idea. Then, together we mixed all the components in a large serving bowl and I served the dish with warmed flatbread. It was also a recipe that my daughter enjoyed -- maybe if I'd made and served a dish with mint, chili, capers, and garlic she'd have been a bit more resistant to trying it but as it was she "sampled" the ingredients as she added them to the dressing and was pleased to have "made" dinner that night. And, after reading her introduction I feel like this cookbook was really written over the past couple of decades, born from the Monday-to-Friday-get-a-meal-on-the-table situations that Henry experienced cooking for her own family. I roasted red onions, eggplant, and red peppers and put them on ciabatta with this and we all loved it.This is a great recipe and I think you could use the same base switching out ingredients that you might do in a quiche or a gratin. My second thought about why some folks are having issues with this recipe came when I looked at the photos posted by other cooks. When I cross-referenced with The Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, she said that rice needs 50-60 mins in the oven which I would agree with.
