Yotam has done it again. Despite the hype, this really is his best book – at least to judge from the handful of recipes that I’ve tried so far. I loved his wild mushroomy twist on the majedra that featured in his Jerusalem book, and the coriander pesto to go with oven roasted butternut squash is a real winner. I used it in my recent article in The Independent on coriander (which you can see at the bottom of the home page) to show that pesto doesn’t have to be just from basil. The only snag with making Ottolenghi recipes is getting hold of the ingredients, so the folks at Ottolenghi have put together a Plenty More Hamper which has it all. At £100 it’s not cheap, but if you can afford it will save a hell of a lot of trouble traipsing around delis and supermarkets searching for stuff. It also makes a great Christmas present – the hamper includes a signed copy of the book as well. Buy it in the Ottolenghi online shop
