London-based NOPI is Yotam Ottolenghi’s flagship restaurant which serves ‘small plates’ of food inspired by the Mediterranean, Middle East and Asia. NOPI: The Cookbook is the latest edition in Ottolenghi’s line of successful cookery books and has been written in collaboration with head chef Ramael Scully. The first thing you notice about the book is the strikingly minimal, gilded cover which reflects the simple yet elegant interior of the restaurant. Within these stylish pages is food which perfectly illustrates the eclectic menu at this much-loved destination. The introduction provides an insight into how NOPI and the style of food it serves came about, as well as a lovely depiction of Ottolenghi and Scully’s professional relationship and ultimate friendship.
