Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipes for fried party snacks for new year and beyond

Room for one more party, yes? Just one more slice of cake and one more glass of wine? New Year’s Eve marks the line between one year and the next, of course, but for many of us it also marks the cut-off point between indulgence and abstinence. What better way to tread this fine line, then, than to …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s mushroom recipes

Talk of “earthy flavours” is pretty common at this time of the year, but it really bears repeating in the case of mushrooms, because they taste so very much of the soil from which they grow. Mushrooms don’t have any chlorophyll, so are unable to harvest energy from sunlight, which means they have …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s summer courgette recipes

Looking back on what I’ve written about courgettes in the past, I see that I’ve been too apologetic. I’ve always loved these baby marrows, but for some reason have felt the need to justify them. For example, my adoration of stuffed courgettes, which would definitely feature in my final meal, seems …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s rhubarb recipes

Rhubarb is either forced or field-grown. The forced kind is the one everyone celebrates at the start of the year, when those slender, hot-pink stalks provide a welcome contrast to the greys of winter. It hands over the baton to field-grown rhubarb at the end of March/beginning of April, which is …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s potato recipes

In the nursery rhyme One Potato, Two Potatoes, Three Potatoes, Four, the number of potatoes keeps going steadily up – which makes sense to me, because they are utterly delicious. But in the real world, sales of potatoes have been going steadily down; we get through 20% fewer spuds now than 10 years …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipes for winter salads and slaws

There are two ways to get warm and happy in the kitchen right now. One is to turn on the oven or stove, and put on a pot to simmer away for a good few hours. I love this sort of slow, warming and hearty cooking, because it challenges the cold and grey outdoors. The other way, though, is to meet the …

Readers’ recipe swap: leeks

It feels more than a little odd to bring this four-year-old veteran column to a close with a handful of leeks. Then again, ending on an allium is a good way to go: it’s the veg that’s always there, the one most dishes start with, and the one more than a few finish off with (I’ll top anything with …

Yotam Ottolenghi’s tandoori recipes

The idea of kids’ food or teenage cooking is not a natural one for me.
