Description

Ottolenghi is one of the most iconic and dynamic restaurants in the country. Its unique blend of exquisite, fresh food, abundantly presented in a cutting-edge, elegant environment, has imaginatively redefined people's dining expectations. For the first time, Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi are publishing here their superb sweet and savoury recipes.

Yotam and Sami's inventive yet simple dishes are inspired by their respective childhoods in West and East Jerusalem but rest on numerous other culinary traditions, ranging from North Africa to Lebanon, Italy and California. The 140 original recipes cover everything from accomplished meat and fish main courses, through to many healthy and quick salads and suppers, plus Ottolenghi's famous and delectable cakes and breads.

Ottolenghi: The Cookbook captures the zeitgeist for honest, healthy, bold cooking presented with flair, style and substance. This painstakingly designed, lavishly photographed recipe book offers the timeless qualities of a cookery classic.

"Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi...are purveyors of some of the city's most beautiful food. In this sleek, good-looking volume they spill the beans on some of their best known dishes. It's very modern, very metropolitan... in the vein of the River Cafe and Moro books - and we suspect it will be just as popular with London farmer's market shoppers this summer"

About Yotam Ottolenghi

Yotam Ottolenghi (Author)
Yotam Ottolenghi is the restaurateur and chef-patron of the four London-based Ottolenghi delis, as well as the NOPI and ROVI restaurants. He is the author of seven best-selling cookery books. Amongst several prizes, Ottolenghi SIMPLE won the National Book Award and was selected as best book of the year by the New York Times. Yotam has been a weekly columnist for the Saturday Guardian for over thirteen years and is a regular contributor to the New York Times. His commitment to the championing of vegetables, as well as ingredients once seen as 'exotic', has led to what some call 'The Ottolenghi effect'. This is shorthand for the creation of a meal which is full of colour, flavour, bounty and sunshine. Yotam lives in London with his family www.ottolenghi.co.uk @Ottolenghi

Sami Tamimi (Author)
Sami Tamimi was born and raised in Jerusalem and was immersed in food from childhood. He started his career as commis-chef in a Jerusalem hotel and worked his way up, through many restaurants and ethnic traditions, to become head chef of Lilith, one of the top restaurants in Tel Aviv in the 1990's.
Sami moved to London in 1997 and worked at Baker and Spice as head chef, where he set up a traiteur section with a rich Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean spread. In 2002 he partnered with Noam Bar and Yotam Ottolenghi to set up Ottolenghi in Notting Hill. The company now has four stores and two restaurants, NOPI and ROVI, all in central London.
In his position as the executive head chef, Sami is involved in developing and nurturing young kitchen talents and creating new dishes and innovative menus.
Alongside Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi is co-author of two bestselling cookbooks: Ottolenghi: The Cookbook and Jerusalem: A Cookbook.

Our customer reviews

I bought this book having never been to this famous eatery and the only reason for this grave omission is that I live in Australia! I simply adore this type of food and this glorious book. The recipes are full of freshness, goodness and bursting with flavours. Several of the dishes have already become standards on my entertaining tables, with my guests always asking me where I found the recipes and it is always one of the first of my (many) cookbooks that I reach for when seeking inspiration. This will certainly be one of the first places that we go to eat when we next make that very long flight to the northern hemisphere!show more
