Relaxed, flexible home cooking from Yotam Ottolenghi and his superteam.

Whether they’re conjuring up new recipes or cooking for themselves at home, the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen team do what we all do: they raid their kitchens. But then, they turn whatever they find into approachable creations with an ‘Ottolenghi’ twist.

This instinct is in perfect sync with recent times, when we’ve all been standing in front of our kitchen shelves, our cupboards and our fridges, wondering what to cook with what we’ve got; how to put a can of chickpeas or a bag of frozen peas to good use, instead of taking an extra trip to the shops.

For the first time, the team welcome us into their creative space. These dishes pack all the punch and edge we expect from Ottolenghi, but offer more flexibility to make them our own, using what we’ve got to hand. There’s the ultimate guide to creamy dreamy hummus, a one-pan route to confit tandoori chickpeas and a tomato salad that rules them all.

This book is all about feeding ourselves and our families with less stress and less fuss, but with all the ‘wow’ of an Ottolenghi meal. It’s a notebook to scribble on and add to, to take its ethos and absolutely make it your own.

This is how to cook, the OTK way.

‘Ottolenghi’s test kitchen under a railway arch, where he and his team conjure up new recipes, has always felt like my version of Dahl’s chocolate factory, and its spirit inhabits Ottolenghi’s Instagram account. At a time when everyone and their pug is doing Insta-cookalongs, his is still something special’ – Marina O’Loughlin, Sunday Times
