Sweet on Ottolenghi? Join Us in Baking Through His Latest Book

With the savory ingredients that show up time and time again in Ottolenghi’s suite of books (we’re looking at you eggplant and tahini), it’s easy to forget he started his cooking career as a pastry chef.

He’s returned to his roots in Sweet: Desserts from London’s Ottolenghi, co-authored with his pastry chef and longtime collaborator, Helen Goh. The all-dessert cookbook is filled with cookies and tarts and cakes and bars, and our Baking Club has eagerly anticipated its arrival.

This December, the Baking Club will work our way through Sweet, but don’t worry if you haven’t picked it up yet. Here are a trio of dessert recipes from Ottolenghi and Goh to get you started:

Note: Not all of these recipes can be found in Sweet, our book of the month, but since we’re sharing them here, they can be considered fair game for sharing in the Facebook group.
