About the Author
Helen was born in Malaysia but started her cooking career in Australia, where she had migrated with her family as a girl. After 7 years as head pastry chef at Donovans, a landmark Melbourne restaurant, she moved to London and soon joined Ottolenghi. She has worked closely with Yotam as the lead product developer for the past ten years. Helen draws widely on Asian, Western and Middle Eastern influences in her cooking – and of course, on her love of sweets.

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.
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.
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.
