Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner … not |I have every one of Ottolenghi’s cookbooks. I absolutely adore his food and his presentation. Soon after breast cancer treatment I found I wanted to open up my home again to our friends and celebrate the end of chemotherapy (well worth a celebration trust me).
I wasn’t yet fully ready to entertain 12 guests and do all the cooking, so we all pitched in and put together a menu from an Ottolenghi cookbook and each couple brought a plate to the buffet (since then we have done this a few times and not only at our house but others have jumped onto the idea). So much easier and so much more fun because you are sharing the glory together and we can all talk food all night (well almost all night).
I decorated the table in Ottolenghi style and I had to make the dessert (his sweet salty cherry cheesecake is absolutely delicious).
