Sweet: Desserts from London's Ottolenghi - Yotam Ottolenghi, Helen Goh

Staff Pick

The most anticipated cookbook of the year had its U.S. publishing date in October and, rightfully so, became an instant hit. Yotam Ottolenghi, known for the savory and vegetarian dishes we loved in Jerusalem and Plenty, actually started as a pastry chef. Together with his long-time collaborator Helen Goh he has created nothing short of a love letter to desserts, with the name so fitting and inviting that you can’t help but pick up this book the minute you see it. Sweet (Ten Speed, $35) is a celebration of everything sweet, from cookies and biscuits to cakes and pies, there’s something here for everyone’s taste. The recipes are clear and guide you through the whole process with helpful tips and tricks. Special attention was given to ensuring that all the ingredients can easily be found and used. But make no mistake: everything is Ottolenghi-fied – there’s a boldness to it, some unpredictable ingredient, like a rose petal, star anise or orange blossom—and the results are just marvelous. And the photos, oh my, just look at the Frozen Espresso Parfait! When I got my copy of the book I spent an hour just looking at the photos, they are the feast for the eyes!
