Ottolenghi Test Kitchen: Shelf Love

Ottolenghi Test Kitchen: Shelf Love

Author: Yotam Ottolenghi Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/09/2021

Relaxed, flexible home cooking from Yotam Ottolenghi and his superteam. Whether they're conjuring up new recipes or cooking for themselves at home, the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen team do what we all do: they raid their kitchens. But then, they turn whatever they find into approachable creations with an 'Ottolenghi' twist. This instinct is in perfect sync with recent times, when we've all been standing in front of our kitchen shelves, our cupboards and our fridges, wondering what to cook with what we've got; how to put a can of chickpeas or a bag of frozen peas to good use, instead of taking an extra trip to the shops. For the first time, the team welcome us into their creative space. These dishes pack all the punch and edge we expect from Ottolenghi, but offer more flexibility to make them our own, using what we've got to hand. There's the ultimate guide to creamy dreamy hummus, a one-pan route to confit tandoori chickpeas and a tomato salad that rules them all. This book is all about feeding ourselves and our families with less stress and less fuss, but with all the 'wow' of an Ottolenghi meal. It's a notebook to scribble on and add to, to take its ethos and absolutely make it your own. This is how to cook, the OTK way.

Fire, Smoke, Green

Fire, Smoke, Green

Author: Martin Nordin Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/04/2020

In Martin Nordin's second book, he brings us a host of mouthwatering, modern vegetarian recipes, using the most elemental and ancient method of cooking: fire. Not just a barbecue cookbook, Fire, Smoke, Green is broken up into seven chapters that cover everything you need to know about making great food over the flame: from grilling directly onto fire, to cooking with indirect fire, smoked recipes and even wood-fired pizza. Atmospheric photography and charming illustrations throughout bring you something other than your average vegetarian cookbook - as lovers of Martin's first book Green Burgers will attest, his approach to meat-free cooking is anything but boring. Try the Roasted and smoked potatoes with beer-caramelised onions; the Fennel roots with shiitake, green onion, buckwheat and herb oil; or Harissa-marinated sweet potato with grilled cabbage leaves and black dukkah. Or if you still can't get enough of the burger recipes, why not try the Courgette and mungbean burgers with sriracha mayonnaise and furikake, washed down with a smoky mezcal with grilled grapefruit.
