Ottolenghi for everyone: a long-awaited cookbook of 130 accessible and achievable recipes for every home cook, from powerhouse author, chef, and restaurateur Yotam Ottolenghi.
Beloved for his innovative recipes that incorporate flavour-packed Middle Eastern ingredients, superstar chef Yotam Ottolenghi has become a household name the world over, and especially well-loved in Canada. And while countless home cooks have been inspired to integrate tahini, pomegranate molasses, za'atar and other Middle Eastern staples into their cooking, sometimes the long ingredients lists or hard-to-find recipe components relegate this recipes to weekend projects. In Simple, Ottolenghi presents a collection of delicious, pared-down dishes that are packed with his signature nuanced flavours, but in a way that's accessible for home cooks and weeknight dinners. Recipes like Roasted Baby Carrots with Harissa and Pomegranate, Roasted Red Onion and Chickpea Salad with Tomato and Tahini, and Spring Roast Chicken with Preserved Lemon are organized by type of dish (brunch dishes, soups, vegetables, grains and legumes, pasta, fish, meat, and desserts), making any meal brilliantly, deliciously simple.
Yotam Ottolenghi is a seven-time New York Times best-selling cookbook author who contributes to the New York Times Food section and has a weekly column in The Guardian. His Ottolenghi Simple was selected as a best book of the year by NPR and the New York Times; Jerusalem, written with Sami Tamimi, was awarded Cookbook of the Year by the International Association of Culinary Professionals and named Best International Cookbook by the James Beard Foundation. He lives in London, where he co-owns an eponymous group of restaurants and the fine-dining destinations Nopi and Rovi.
