NOPI: The Cookbook includes over 100 of the most popular dishes from Yotam’s Soho-based restaurant NOPI. It’s written with long-time collaborator and NOPI head chef Ramael Scully, who brings his distinctive Asian twist to the Ottolenghi kitchen. Yotam and Scully’s pantries come together so that sumac meets star anise, miso meets molasses and pandan meets pomegranate. The resulting dishes shine brightly.
Whether you’re a regular at the NOPI restaurant and want to know the secret to your favorite dish – the baked blue cheesecake, the beef brisket, the twice-cooked baby chicken – or are an Ottolenghi fan who wants to see how it’s done in the restaurant kitchen, this is a collection of recipes which will inspire and delight.
From simple starters – the burrata with blood orange, coriander seeds and lavender oil – to more involved main courses and puddings, there is something here for every meal and every occasion. Whether you’re looking for a quick brunch or an impressive and complete restaurant-style dinner party, this book is another gem to add to your Ottolenghi collection.
Yotam Ottolenghi's path to the world of cooking and baking has been anything but straightforward. Having completed a Masters degree in philosophy and literature whilst working on the news desk of an Israeli daily, he made a radical shift on coming to London in 1997. He started as an assistant pastry chef at the Capital and then worked at Kensington Place and Launceston Place, where he ran the pastry section. Yotam subsequently worked for Maison Blanc and then Baker and Spice, before starting his own eponymous group of restaurants/food shops, with branches in Notting Hill, Islington and Kensington.
