Ottolenghi The Cookbook--have you tried the recipes yet?

  • 7

I am tempted to buy another cookbook--Ottolenghi The Cookbook, but would like your opinion first. Thank you.

  1. This was the Cookbook of the Month twice, so lots of us have cooked from this book together. Here is a link to the master thread.

    It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite cookbooks ever. I don't think you could go wrong, at all!

    1. Sorry, just realized that this is a cookbook that was just released in the US but was published in 2008. I'll check other threads for comments.

      1. re: naturelle

        Oh my goodness! Don't be sorry at all. I am just thrilled to share my enthusiasm with you.

      2. Have we tried the recipes? What a question. Not only have the home cooks who post on the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) threads cooked from this cookbook for a month or more, we have cooked from all his other books as well.

        Here's a link to the master thread which links to reporting chapter threads that will give you an idea of what we have cooked and how we liked the recipes. I think I can safely say that we have really enjoyed everything we've cooked from Ottolenghi's and Tamimi's books: I for one love everything I've cooked from Ottolenghi. You won't go wrong with his book.

        Have fun, and I hope you enjoy the book as much as we did!

        1. Fantastic book, I highly recommend it.

          1. I think it's the best of the three Ottolenghi books.
