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.

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.

Best Cookbook in my vast and ever increasing collection!
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!
