Yotam Ottolenghi's owns four eponymous restaurants--each a patisserie, deli, restaurant, and bakery rolled into one--that are among London's most popular culinary destinations.

I have a couple hundred cookbooks and a functional chef's kitchen. Culinary trends and implementing the latest food creations are my passion.
Ottolenghi, an Israeli relocated to London, is one of the hottest chefs on the scene today. I have already recreated a half dozen of his recipes from this book and have enjoyed all of them. More importantly, my husband, has gone back for seconds - even on the totally vegetarian salads and entrees.
The results of his recipes are incredibly presentable and attractive, tasty beyond description and healthy., What a great combination that would-be competitors fall short of.

A fabulous addition
This book is one of the best cookbooks that I have discovered. The recipes are a sophisticated, exciting blend of flavors and healthy ingredients that are easy to put together. I have rave reviews from guests for everything that I have made from the book.
Publishers Weekly, 2013-01-21 Available for the first time in a U.S. edition, this book includes 140 recipes from Ottlenghi's four popular Mediterranean-inspired London restaurants. (The authors also co-wrote Jerusalem; Tamimi is a partner and head chef at Ottolenghi.) Both from Jerusalem, the authors share the philosophy that "unfussiness and simplicity in food preparation are... the only way to maintain the freshness of a dish. Each individual ingredient has a clear voice." A detailed list of the book's core ingredients includes garlic, lemon, mint, tahini, orange blossom water, rose water, and feta cheese. An extensive chapter on vegetables, legumes and grains covers fresh fruit and vegetables (figs with young pecorino and honey), and has a section devoted to the "mighty eggplant." Highlights include Ottolenghi's famous grilled broccoli with chile and garlic, along with couscous with oven-dried tomatoes, and dried apricots and butternut squash. Meat and fish are separated into sections: lamb, beef, and pork dishes with recipes like lamb chops with walnut, fig, and goat cheese salad;, beef and lamb meatballs baked in tahini; and roast pork belly with two relishes. Standout dishes like harissa-marinated chicken with red grapefruit salad and seared duck breasts with blood orange and star anise are found in the poultry section. And fish and shellfish are showcased in recipes for panfried sea bass on pita with labneh, tomato, and preserved lemon, and for buttered prawns with tomato, olives, and arak. Also appearing are Ottolenghi's beloved baked goods: breads, cakes, cookies, and tarts. This vibrant and bold collection lives up to the authors promise that "cooking can be enjoyable, simple, and fulfilling, yet look and taste amazing." (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
