As the Ottolenghi lover I am, I got my pre-ordered copy of his new cookbook "Jerusalem" last week. It is lovely, and the recipes look delicious. The photos are as stunning as those in Plenty, but this book has even more text backstories, which I appreciate. Sunday I made the hummus, the herb pie (like an Israeli spanikopita), and the kofte. All were very tasty. The hummus was a bit thick, but it was improved with a little water to thin it out. The herb pie was made for a picnic and the crowd devoured it in about ten minutes. The kofte were the best I have ever made, and were easy. All of this was even more enjoyable since I had to get my car serviced at Mini of Alexandria on Saturday and I took advantage of the wait to hit up the Fair Price International market near Van Dorn St. for authentic ingredients. I think their halal lamb and beef contributed to the success of the kofte. If you are an Ottolenghi fan I suggest getting the book. It's as good as those in the past, and he seems to have tamed his desire to overload with too much oil or butter.
