Some of the people who made this another gorgeous Ottolenghi Christmas.
Just wanted to say thank you as well - I was in London until yesterday and ate most of my meals at some Ottolenghi around town - and Nopi, of course! - and they were all brilliant (Nopi's spiced tofu, tomato and braised aubergine converted a long time tofu skeptic).
I was wondering if there is any chance of having some hints to the recipe of the peas and mint croquettes that were on the menu at Ottolenghi on these days? I have no clue on how to make them stay in one croquette that can actually survive frying, the inside had such a definite texture, not mushy at all. Needless to say we loved them, unfortunately we don't live close enough to London to have them often.
we had an Ottolenghi Christmas here in Oregon--the barley/pomegranate salad from Plenty plus the marinated & grilled lamb from the first cookbook (which was a Christmas gift).
Wonderful! Thank you!!
@caffettiera, here's the link to the recipe. http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/may/28/pea-mint-croquettes-pasta-recipes?INTCMP=SRCH
@jean, thank you!
Lovely, happy people doing what they love (clearly). Happy holidays to you at the Ottolenghi family! Here's to a delicious New Year!
Hi Ottolenghi team,
First of all I wish you a very happy new year and all the best for 2012!
I spent 6 months in London last year and was totally addicted to your food that tastes and looks so good! When I went back to Paris where I live I opened a restaurant (open for 3 months now) and I put my fresh pastries in the window as you do but I don't manage creating the same abundance as you because my window is not very large but I think it's a matter of fitting too(not sure it's really the right word). Your window and counter always look amazing and delicious so would you mind telling me where you bought your bases with different levels on which you put your plates to give this amazing abundant effect?
Hope I've been clear enough...
I'll be back to London soon and can't wait to go to NOPI! I'm very excited!
Thanks for all the hapiness and inspiration you gave me!
@cactus, our stands are custom built in different sizes and we work hard to make the display full and abundant. Best of luck with your new restaurant!
I have a dream, visit your restaurant, I,m from Spain and here we have very good restaurants but I want to visit yours
Dori, may your dream come true.
Amusing! I was just looking through some articles and no idea how I ended up with your blog Yotam! Believe or not, I again have traveled back to my days in London and Edinburgh. and whilst scroll down, just saw that you have been in Istanbul where I was born. Kanaat Lokantasi is my favourite place that you have put photos of all yummy meal. Also Saray is best on dessert. When I go back to London, definetely, NOPI will be my first stop!!!
@Jaz, fantastic to hear, thanks. Hope to see you in NOPI soon.
looks amazing, and the team loocks like everybody has so much fun being a part of it! i love the european cover and am going to have to order it in europe , the us cover is boring as usual!
we had a BBQ in florida yesterday and i cooked your cinnamon mushrooms,baked the florentines ( always a great success) and made the wild rice salad but with dandelion instead of rocket, ( i think you would have liked it, the bitterness was great!) the meat was good old american pulled pork cooked for 12 hours... all together so glad that i can show my friends how amazing your ideas are!
thanks for that
@Sanni, dandelion in the rice salad sounds fantastic. I will have to try it, Thanks!
