Their first book Ottolenghi ($34.95) cookbook captured our customers imagination and then some. Although we had to hand sell the book in that time honoured tradition of independent bookselling, once introduced to customers they couldn't get enough. Now the sequel has landed, full of creative vegetarian dishes, no you don't have to be vegetarian to appreciate these dishes. And yes, it may be even better than the first book! Softcover, 288 pp. $39.95.
Ottolenghi: The Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi
You know something good is afoot when the authors warn those who do not like lemon and garlic to skip to the end. However this book from the popular Nottinghill deli, bakery, patisserie, cafe is pure genius because these southern Mediterranean/Middle Eastern recipes are totally accessible to the home cook. The huge flavour and vibrant colour of these dishes is derived from readily available ingredients using the simplest of techniques. Perhaps best of all is the story of how a Jewish boy from West Jerusalem and an Arab boy from East Jerusalem found each other, and success, in London. Not to be missed are their wonderful, signature giant meringues! Hardcover, 304 pp, $65.00.
