In Ottolenghi Simple, powerhouse author and chef Yotam Ottolenghi presents 130 streamlined recipes packed with his signature Middle Eastern-inspired flavors. Each dish can be made in 30 minutes or less, with 10 or fewer ingredients, in a single pot, using pantry staples, or prepared ahead of time for brilliantly, deliciously simple meals. Brunch gets a make-over with Braised Eggs with Leeks and Za'atar; Cauliflower, Pomegranate, and Pistachio Salad refreshes the side-dish rotation; Lamb and Feta Meatballs bring ease to the weeknight table; and every sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied by the spectacular Fig and Thyme Clafoutis. With more than 130 photographs, this is elemental Ottolenghi for everyone.

YOTAM OTTOLENGHI is the author of the New York Times best-selling cookbooks Plenty, Ottolenghi, Plenty More, NOPI, Sweet, and Jerusalem, which was awarded Cookbook of the Year by the International Association of Culinary Professionals and Best International Cookbook by the James Beard Foundation. He lives in London, where he co-owns an eponymous group of restaurants and the fine-dining restaurant Nopi.

SAMIN NOSRAT'S cookbook Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat was named "Food Book of the Year" by The Times of London, was a New York Times best-seller, and won the James Beard Award for Best General Cookbook. As a sophomore at UC Berkeley, she ate dinner at Chez Panisse and immediately decided to get a job there as a busser. Nosrat eventually worked her way up to the restaurant kitchen, becoming a cook and working with Alice Waters. She is a regular food columnist for The New York Times Magazine and has a television show in production.
