Our next London Cookbook Club choice is Plenty More, a Yo Tang (Yotam Ottolenghi) book. He has several restaurants around the london area, if you get a chance it is a little slice of heaven. He has just opened his latest one in Spittafield’s Market. http://www.ottolenghi.co.uk It’s especially wonderful if you are a vegetarian!
Sonia will be hosting this ladies only night at she and Chris lovely home. I am looking forward to it, as I have been cooking from it a lot and have enjoyed everything that has come out of it. It is a veggie only book, but his latest and greatest book is from his upscale NOPI restaurant, which includes meat recipes!
I will post the menu once we have all agreed on the fab dishes we will be making/eating!
A friend sent me this link http://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/articles/how-to-throw-a-dinner-party-nopi-style and it’s pretty spot on, although he doesn’t mentioned your table setting, candles, flowers, etc.. I think it all needs to works together, so on the food end Scully has it down, and my advise is to set your table before hand and think about all your add ins while thinking who’s coming, what are you cooking, and the mood you would like to place on the evening soiree!
Have you been to any of Yo Tang’s places, or cooked anything out of his amazing books?
