Ottolenghi - The CookbookOttolenghi is a restaurant/café here in London that is famous for its eye-catching window displays of scrumptious treats as well as for their take-away food and coffee. I used to live around the corner from their Notting Hill branch, and it was such a luxury: fresh muffins and scones in the morning, great sandwiches for lunch, and the most delicious take-away food for dinner! My husband actually joked that our dinners were more often made by our friend, “Otto” than by anyone else!

Ottolenghi is also our ‘go-to’ place for party food and canapés. It’s all so good!

So, imagine my delight when I found out they were making an Ottolenghi Cookbook ! And, imagine the sheer joy of receiving the new cookbook from my friend, Sally, for my birthday! The perfect birthday present! With photos accompanying the recipes, the cookbook is both beautiful and inspiring.  Now, even though I don’t live around the corner, I can have Ottolenghi treats whenever I wish!

And you can too, because it’s now available from Amazon . Hooray!!

The book looks pretty promising, recepies so modern and fresh… I’ll buy it very soon.

Ha, you girls, you just have to come back and visit all of us in London a bit more often!!!
I love this place (found it via Courtney! – thanks!), we also used it already several times for catering for dinners, lunches etc. Lovely food, freshly made, always arriving by cab on agreed time and also very healthy. Their cakes also are delicious…..
