In a moment of synchronicity, my daughter is going vegan and I got an email from my local bookshop, Locust Valley Bookstore, announcing the new Ottolenghi cookbook, Sweet. I’ve been meaning to pick up one of the London chef’s cookbooks and the time is now—the vegetarian recipes are said to be delicious.

If you do not have a local bookstore to support, all are available on Amazon.

  • We must go to Ottolenghi next time you’re here. It’s my absolute fave!

  • I am a huge fan of his restaurant in Islington as well as his cookbooks. A lentil salad recipe with roasted tomatoes & blue cheese (you can leave this out for your daughter) is a particular favourite. Enjoy!

  • I truly enjoy these books and cook from them all of the time. There was a recent profile of Yotam Ottolenghi in the Financial Times (looks like a great house). I enjoyed the article because it captured the essence of what I enjoy about these cookbooks. Another favorite is Nigel Slater – the “Tender” series features recipes centered upon fruits and vegetables. In my opinion they are gorgeous volumes from a visually appealing viewpoint; great font, etc. Enjoy!

  • We ate at his restaurant in London on our last trip there and it was fantastic. I do have a few of his cookbooks, but haven’t really used them yet – good motivation to begin.

  • I’m like Kathy, I’ve been gifted two of his cookbooks and haven’t tried a thing (!) because although I think I’m a pretty good cook they seem intimidating….will have to try again.

  • I just baked the beet and ginger cake (fabulous!) recipe. It was featured on davidlebovitz com blog.
