Chef Yotam Ottolenghi knows numbers. (And we’re not talking about the rankings of his last three NYT bestsellers.) With Simple, he serves up one cookbook, 130 recipes, all doable in 30 minutes or less, in a single pot, and with fewer than 10 ingredients. On top of all that, they’re designed to be prepped ahead. All sounds super streamlined and simple, doesn’t it? Well, factor in his keeps-you-guessing Middle Eastern flavors—Braised Eggs with Leeks and Za’atar, Lamb and Feta Meatballs, to name a few—and...mind-blown.
