Diana Henry, food writer

We were thrilled to welcome the incredible Diana Henry to Life on a Plate for this episode. She is one of our most beloved food writers, delivering a steady stream of delicious recipes into homes across the land via her cookbooks (including Simple and How to Eat a Peach), Telegraph columns and daily Instagram posts. Legendarily hard-working and prolific, Diana experienced severe illness during the past two years: it slowed her down a little but has not dimmed her spirit one bit. In this conversation with Yasmin Khan and Alison Oakervee, she talks about those frightening times, but also about her childhood in Northern Ireland, her first experiences of cosmopolitan London in the 80s, and the people, places and ingredients that inspire and delight her now.

You can read Diana’s weekly column in Waitrose Weekend and follow her on Instagram and Twitter @dianahenryfood.
