We were so inspired by last week Yotam Ottolenghi's MasterClass that we decided to dedicate the next weeks to this incredible chef. Yotam is known for his incredible cookbooks so we decided to share with you the Ottolenghi Flavour Cookbook Review.
In this stunning new cookbook Yotam and co-writer Ixta Belfrage break down the three factors that create flavor and offer innovative vegetable dishes that deliver brand-new ingredient combinations to excite and inspire. Ottolenghi Flavour combines simple recipes for weeknights, low-effort high-impact dishes, and standout meals for the relaxed cook. Packed with signature colorful photography, Flavour not only inspires us with what to cook, but how flavor is dialed up and why it works.
In Ottolenghi Flavour, Yotam and Ixta offer a next-level approach to vegetables that breaks down the fundamentals of cooking into three key elements: process, pairing, and produce. For process, Yotam and Ixta show how easy techniques such as charring and infusing can change the way you think about cooking. Discover how to unlock new depths of flavor by pairing vegetables with sweetness, fat, acidity, or chile heat, and learn to identify the produce that has the innate ability to make dishes shine.
These three key elements, are not only the heart of this book, book the actual body itself. They are the three and only chapters of this book, which reveal how to tap into the potential of ordinary vegetables to create extraordinary food.
With surefire hits, such as Aubergine Dumplings alla Parmigiana, Hasselback Beetroot with Lime Leaf Butter, Miso Butter Onions, Spicy Mushroom Lasagne and Romano Pepper Schnitzels, plus mouth-watering photographs of nearly every one of the more than 100 recipes, Ottolenghi Flavour is the impactful, next-level approach to vegetable cooking that Ottolenghi fans and vegetable lovers everywhere have been craving.
Yotam is well known for his love for vegetables and his flavorful cookbooks. He has been singing the praises of cauliflowers, tomatoes, lemons, and eggplant for over a decade. His passion and dedication is something that you can feel in every word of his cookbooks.
Following the success of Plenty and Plenty More, Flavour is 'Plenty 3', a book that will explain to you what makes certain vegetable dishes taste so good. This explanation is one of the main reasons we love this book. Yotam didn't just give us a bunch of delicious recipes, but he also explained to us why they are so delicious. And he did this, not through small notes, as we often see in other books, but through pages and pages entirely dedicated to these explanations. Knowing all this not only will make your life easier when you are cooking the recipes in this book, but it will also make you a better cook.
Ottolenghi Flavour is packed with stunning photographs and delicious recipes that will delight even the biggest carnivore cook. With 100 recipes that vary from main courses, side dishes, desserts, and much more, this book will have something for everyone. Most of the recipes are easy to do, but if you are not used to Yotam's Cuisine, be aware that all the flavor of his recipes are the result of the combination of many ingredients.
Ottolenghi Flavour is a book that reinforces Yotam's image as one of the best chefs and cookbook authors in the world. Flavour is not only the best vegetarian cookbook that we ever reviewed but also one of the best cookbooks that we ever brought you. Full of mouth-watering recipes for every occasion and with useful information that will help you level up your vegetables, this is a book that has earned a place in our kitchen.
Ottolenghi Flavour is a book that will show you new and exciting ways of presenting vegetables. A book that will change forever the way you look at vegetables. A book that is simply brilliant!
