The Sunday Times and New York Times Bestseller
'There's nothing like a perfectly light sponge flavoured with spices and citrus or an icing-sugar-dusted cookie to raise the spirits and create a moment of pure joy.'
In his stunning new baking and desserts cookbook Yotam Ottolenghi and his long-time collaborator Helen Goh bring the Ottolenghi hallmarks of fresh, evocative ingredients, exotic spices and complex flavourings - including fig, rose petal, saffron, aniseed, orange blossom, pistachio and cardamom - to indulgent cakes, biscuits, tarts, puddings, cheesecakes and ice cream.
Sweet includes over 110 innovative recipes with stunning photos by award-winning Peden + Munk - from Blackberry and Star Anise Friands, Tahini and Halva Brownies, Persian Love Cakes, Middle Eastern Millionaire's Shortbread, and Saffron, Orange and Honey Madeleines to Flourless Chocolate Layer Cake with Coffee, Walnut and Rosewater and Cinnamon Pavlova with Praline Cream and Fresh Figs.
There is something here to delight everyone - from simple mini-cakes and cookies that parents can make with their children to showstopping layer cakes and roulades that will reignite the imaginations of accomplished bakers.

Kitchen is not just for cooking it’s for playing. As Morticia Adams said “ play with your food”.
In his recipes he brings in the fun of creating.
I cannot say that all the recipes are 5 *️⃣, actually some ( and I already made few) are too rich or not my best, but they inspire me to use my own twist on them, and that’s what i love about these recipes that it is a type “ wonderland game play” and the book have just opened the door.

As with previous Yotam Ottolenghi recipe books, the book is beautifully presented. Superb photographs and clear instructions, with details of timing, storage details and useful hints. I also like the clear quantities given – so for example, ½ small banana = 50 g mashed.
There are so many interesting and exciting recipes to try. But also those that give pizazz to well known favourites. For example the Custard Yo-Yos – with roasted rhubarb icing. Absolutely gorgeous to look at and superb tasting. Also Banana Cakes - with rum caramel. What a delight! Other little details such as how to make the Chocolate Chip Cookies crispy or chewy are what set this book apart from so many other baking books I have.
So top marks to Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh for providing a wonderful selection of recipes and to the publishers for presenting a most glorious, readable and beautiful book.
Well laid out, clear explanations, content rich and heavy, a complete must for any home cook.
A baking book that achieves to surprise and delight, yet doesn't call for obscure or exotic ingredients that can't be sourced here in UK. Wonderful! Thank you!
The book definitely has kitchen cred! Beautiful to look at on display in the kitchen but everything is absolutely do-able in it. Definitely a good buy and it would make a lovely gift too.
The flavour combinations are really interesting such as the middle eastern millionaire's shortbread or the gingerbread with brandy apples and crème fraîche and the recipes work!
Although I have all the Ottolenghi cookbooks I tended to stear away from the sweet things and concentrated on the savoury dishes. I only really got into baking etc with the Honey and Co cookbooks which always turn out and are delicious. (Sarit Packer once worked at Ottolenghi) This book, I would say is comparable to those. I wouldn't be without it now and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
