Brand-new, cutting-edge cookbook from one of the UK's most popular and stylish deli-restaurants

Ottolenghi is one of the most iconic and dynamic restaurants in existence. 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 savory recipes. Yotam and Sami’s inventive yet simple dishes are inspired by their respective childhoods in West and East Jerusalem but rest on numerous other culinary traditions, ranging from North Africa to Lebanon, and Italy to California. 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. This painstakingly designed, lavishly photographed book offers the timeless qualities of a cookery classic.

About the Author

Yotam Ottolenghi's path to the world of cooking and baking has been anything but straightforward. Having completed a Masters degree in philosophy and literature whilst working on the news desk of an Israeli daily, he made a radical shift on coming to London in 1997. He started as an assistant pastry chef at the Capital and then worked at Kensington Place and Launceston Place, where he ran the pastry section. Yotam subsequently worked for Maison Blanc and then Baker and Spice, before starting his own eponymous group of restaurants/food shops, with branches in Notting Hill, Islington and Kensington. Sami Tamimi's intimate engagement with food started at a tender age, whilst watching his mother prepare Palestinian delicacies at their home within the walls of Arab East Jerusalem. His first job was as a commis chef at the Mount Zion hotel in the city. He thereafter investigated some of his culinary passions, including the food of Yemen, Morocco, Egypt, Persia and even the Eastern European Jewish communities. In 1997 he moved from Tel Aviv to London to work at Baker and Spice, creating a unique traiteur section with the strong identifiable flavours of the Middle East. In 2002 he teamed up with Yotam to open Ottolenghi.

Industry Reviews

"Ottolenghi's ground-breaking classic cookbook, which captured the zeitgeist for using imaginative flavours and ingredients, is relaunched with a contemporary design." -- Ebury Press * Ebury Press * "Britain's most eagerly awaited cookbook" * The Guardian * "Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi...are purveyors of some of the city's most beautiful food. In this sleek, good-looking volume they spill the beans on some of their best known dishes. It's very modern, very metropolitan... in the vein of the River Cafe and Moro books - and we suspect it will be just as popular with London farmer's market shoppers this summer" * Time Out * "Set to be the al fresco bible for summer" * ES Magazine * "There's something irresistibly beautiful about the food at Ottolenghi and the book to accompany the cafes is as seductive: vivid flavours, bright colours and smart, simple ideas for food that mixes middle eastern and Italianate tastes." -- Nigella Lawson * Delicious *

Yotam Ottolenghi

About the Author


Yotam Ottolenghi is an acclaimed chef, food writer and restaurateur. He is the owner of four incredibly successful ‘Ottolenghi’ deli/restaurants in central London as well as his new restaurant venture, NOPI in Soho.

Yotam Ottolenghi is an acclaimed chef, food writer and restaurateur. He was born and raised in Jerusalem, the son of an Italian father and German mother and had always been expected to follow his father into the world of academia. However, when Yotam first came to England in 1998 he took an unexpected turn, and aged 30 decided to indulge his lifelong love of food by studying at the Cordon Bleu.

He began his career as a chef in the pastry department of The Capital Restaurant in Knightsbridge, moving on to become head pastry chef at Baker and Spice. It was here that he met Sami Tamimi, a Palestinian chef with whom he created ‘Ottolenghi’. It started as a small stylish deli in Notting Hill, but soon became a phenomenon. Following the publication of his first cookery book ‘Ottolenghi’, which drew on the inspirational and innovative food served at his chain of delis, his success went global.

Yotam is now the owner of four incredibly successful ‘Ottolenghi’ deli/restaurants in central London as well as his new restaurant venture, NOPI in Soho. He is a regular contributor to The Guardian, author of bestselling cookbooks and a regular face on television.

Yotam made his TV debut in the critically acclaimed BBC documentary ‘Jerusalem on a Plate’, winner of the Kate Whiteman Award for Work on Food and Travel at the Guild of Food Writers Awards.
