Reading – Ottolenghi Simple
I was excited to try this cookbook after flicking through it at the bookshop and already picturing what I was cooking for dinner that night without any trepidation. I am definitely not a chef’s cook, simply a home cook, and I love to cook fresh produce that’s in season. The recipes are distinctly Ottolenghi, with an abundance of beautiful plates of vegetables topped with herbs and yoghurt. Despite the vegetable dishes taking centre stage, the meat and fish chapters are equally as inspiring.
I’ve only made it through a handful of recipes over the last couple of weeks with my aim being to make a new dish every week. So far in our house, the slow-cooked lamb shoulder, asparagus with butter, almonds and capers and oven roasted potato wedges with oregano and feta have been a hit.
