It hits shelves Fall 2017

Make room on your bookshelf, because Israeli-born London chef and best-selling cookbook wizard Yotam Ottolenghi has a new book on the way.

Slated for publication in Fall 2017 by Ten Speed Press, Sweet will focus on, well, sweets, “drawing inspiration from numerous culinary traditions for indulgent delicacies with the Ottolenghi hallmarks of fresh ingredients, exotic spices, and complex flavors.” The book is being co-written by Ottolenghi’s longtime collaborator Helen Goh.

The wildly popular UK chef’s last book, Nopi — named for his upscale London restaurant — was released last fall, and prior releases include the Ottolenghi Cookbook, Jerusalem (which the New York Times placed in the same category as Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking), the vegetable-focused Plenty, and its followup Plenty More.

Though Ottolenghi has so far resisted expanding his restaurant empire to the U.S., his influence is undeniable here: Eater critic Bill Addison argues that his cookbooks, perhaps more than any other source, have helped fuel America’s current fascination with Middle Eastern cooking.
