Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice! Received as a gift and very pleased with the book! Recipes are for most easy to follow, beautiful illustrations! Would buy it for myself if I haven't received it as a gift, and would buy to give as a present!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A feast for the eyes This book is a feast for the eyes and the palate. It is exceptionally well produced (as are all other Ottolenghi titles) and the recipes are mouthwatering. I don't agree with reviewers who call these recipes simple and easy to prepare as they all require considerable attention to detail - but they'll be well worth your time and effort. Sweet will take its place next to my heavily used collection of Ottolenghi's other cookbooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Great dessert book filled with great pictures and recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients can be found in any supermarket. The Gevulde Speculaas cookes filled with almond paste made from scratch was the reason to buy this book. There are many other recipes that aren't complicated to execute. Great book on many international desserts for anyone to try.

Editorial Reviews

"Enter a magical world where homemade desserts and baking traditions meet the Ottolenghi style of generosity, celebration and exotic flavours." --Bonnie Stern, The National PostPraise for previous books: • "This is simply wonderful cooking...modern, smart, and thoughtful. I love it." --Nigel Slater • "With his 2012 cookbook Jerusalem, London restaurateur Yotam Ottolenghi [has] created a sensation by sharing his unexpected and highly personal take on Mediterranean cooking." --Food & Wine • "Jerusalem is the top-selling cookbook in the country, subverting the conventional wisdom that you need to have a TV show to have a bestselling cookbook. The book...has become something of a phenomenon." --Publisher's Weekly • "Plenty...is among the most generous and luxurious nonmeat cookbooks ever produced, one that instantly reminds us that you don't need meat to produce over-the-top food." --Mark Bittman, New York Times • "Yotam Ottolenghi's second cookbook has recipes for dishes largely absent from the American kitchen--a fact that almost never crosses your mind when you flip through it hungry. Everything sounds mouthwatering and looks--and is--doable." --Wall Street JournalPraise for Sweet: • “With Jerusalem and all the books that followed, Yotam Ottolenghi changed everything about what we cook and crave. Now, with Sweet, he and Helen Goh shake up dessert. In signature style, the recipes are generous, warm, inviting, and copiously sparked with inspiration. Yes, bake those brownies with tahini and halva. Add star anise to blackberry cakes. Revel in the exciting new flavours Sweet brings us. It’s what I’ll be doing.” --Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author • “After winning us over with his savory offerings, Yotam Ottolenghi, with Helen Goh, comes to the sweet side with an international array of gorgeous cookies, cakes, candies, custards… I want to make everything in this luscious book!” --David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and L’Appart • “Yotam Ottolenghi’s additions to classic recipes make so much sense, you’ll wonder why you’ve never stirred tahini into brownies or orange flower water into amaretti – or why you’ve never even made your own amaretti! This is my kind of baking book; you’ll want to make everything.” --Elisabeth Prueitt, co-founder of Tartine Manufactory and author of Tartine All Day
