A sneak peek into Ottolenghi's latest cookbook

 fig and pistachio frangipane tartlets

The anticipation for Yotam Ottolenghi's new cookbook, Sweet, is intense. There are only a few days until its UK release on September 7 (the US release date is October 17th). While we are eagerly awaiting our copy, The Guardian released an excerpt of 10 recipes from the book so we can start baking right now.  

Although Ottolenghi made a name with his vegetarian-friendly savory fare, he started his career as a pastry chef. "I've always had a serious love of all things sweet," he says. "There's nothing like a perfectly light sponge flavoured with spices and citrus, or a mega-crumbly icing-sugar-dusted cookie to raise the spirits."

In this cookbook, Ottolenghi partners with his long-time collaborator Helen Goh to create recipes that take familiar desserts - ranging from cakes to ice cream to puddings - and add the Ottolenghi hallmarks of fresh, evocative ingredients combined with exotic spices and complex flavourings.  All of the recipes look sensational; the most difficult part is going to be choosing which one to make first. 

All 10 of the recipes, including the Fig and pistachio frangipane tartlets pictured above, are indexed on EYB. Remember, if you find any recipes you like in The Guardian or anywhere on the web, you can add them to your Bookshelf using the Bookmarklet
