Available for the first time in an American edition, this debut cookbook, from bestselling authors Yotam Ottoloenghi and Sami Tamimi of Plenty and Jerusalem , features 140 recipes culled from the popular Ottolenghi restaurants and inspired by the diverse culinary traditions of the Mediterranean.

Yotam Ottolenghi's four restaurants-each a patisserie, deli, restaurant, and bakery rolled into one- are among London's most popular culinary destinations. Now readers who can't travel to one of the pristine food shops can re-create its famous dishes at home with recipes like Harissa-Marinated Chicken with Red Grapefruit Salad, and Cauliflower and Cumin Fritters with Lime Yogurt. The recipes reflect the authors' upbringings in Jerusalem yet also incorporate culinary traditions from California, Italy, and North Africa, among others. Featuring abundant produce, a full chapter devoted to the "mighty eggplant," and numerous fish and meat dishes, as well as Ottolenghi's famed cakes and breads, Ottolenghi invites readers into a world of inventive flavors and fresh, vibrant cooking.

My new favorite cookbook! And that's saying something, because I read a lot of cookbooks! I loved Plenty and Plenty More and Jerusalem, but hadn't ever borrowed Ottolenghi until just recently. I made the mushrooms with cinnamon and parsley one night this week and it was so good I'm sure it will end up in the regular rotation.

This is a fabulous contemporary Mediterranean cookbook. While I'm not sure if I want to cook every recipe in here, I do want to eat everything! I always think of Mediterranean food as something elderly grandmas or friendly moustache'd cooks make to steal your soul and forever destroy your love for junk food, but the trendier authors, Ottolenghi and Tamimi are artful in their repurposing of old-fashioned ingredients. They kind of made Mediterranean food (which seemed a bit old-fashioned to me before) current, urban and sexy. I'm not ready to return the book after 1 day of going through it, but I wanted to write this review so that you know that this is a book to hold if you want to be inspired to cook. The recipes look simple to prepare, yet I found them novel and sophisticated. This is one of those cookbooks that are a cut above the rest, and I'm so happy I chanced upon it. What a lovely read!

Given the number of holds (49) on the one copy the Library presently has, even the 12 on order would necessitate about a one month wait to obtain a copy on loan. Can the library not afford more copies than this?
