The eagerly awaited desserts cookbook from Yotam Ottolenghi, and his long-time friend and collaborator Helen Goh, embraces indulgence, abundance and extravagance, serving up delicacies to celebrate, share and treat those you love.

The book is exquisitely photographed by the award-winning New York team Peden + Munk, whose work appears regularly in Bon Appétit. Drawing inspiration from numerous culinary traditions, recipes are included for cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, tarts, pies, puddings and confectionery, from speculaas biscuits and financiers to pavlova, pana cotta and Persian love cakes. All have the Ottolenghi hallmarks of fresh ingredients, exotic spices and complex flavourings, including fig, rose petal, saffron, aniseed, orange blossom, star anise, pistachio and cardamom, to name but a few.

There is something here to delight everyone – simple sweets parents can make with their children as well as recipes that will inspire the most accomplished of bakers.

About the Authors

Helen Goh was born in Malaysia but started her cooking career in Australia, where she had migrated with her family as a girl. After 7 years as head pastry chef at Donovans, a landmark Melbourne restaurant, she moved to London and soon joined Ottolenghi. She has worked closely with Yotam as the lead product developer for the past ten years. Helen draws widely on Asian, Western and Middle Eastern influences in her cooking – and of course, on her love of sweets.

A Book Everyone who Likes Making Sweet Treats Should Have.


I am a fan of Ottolenghi's Cook Books. I have also tasted his food in the UK Islington Restaurant. The added bonus of this Book ' Sweet' is the collaboration with an Australian Chef and also reference made to recipes from some of our most beloved and respected Australian Cooks. This book is a joy to have and I can't wait to make some of the recipes.

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.
