Who's the author? Yotam Ottolenghi is well-loved for his beautiful, inspirational, and award-winning cookbooks, including Plenty, Nopi and Ottolenghi: The Cookbook Whilst he's known for his savory and vegetarian dishes, he actually started out his cooking career as a pastry chef.

What's it about? In Sweet, Ottolenghi showcases an incredible array of baked goods, desserts and confections alongside his collaborator, Helen Goh. Each recipe is created with Ottolenghi's signature flavor profiles and ingredients including fig, rose petal, saffron, orange blossom, star anise, pistachio, almond, cardamom, and cinnamon. With stunning photography and endless inspiration for every occasion, it truly is a baker's dream.

Recipes we love: Chocolate, Banana, and Pecan cookies, Rosemary Olive Oil Orange Cake, Cinnamon Pavlova with Praline Cream and Fresh Figs and Flourless Chocolate Layer Cake with Coffee, Walnut, and Rosewater

Good book for: Any indulgent occasion and it's an absolute must for creative bakers and any fan of Ottolenghi's. Sweet is a real celebration of sweet treats and what a joy they are to share with family and friends.
