by Yottam Ottolenghi and Noor Murad

Cook This Book cookbook over a grey concrete background

From the New York Times bestselling author and his superteam of chefs, this is Ottolenghi, unplugged: 85+ irresistible recipes for relaxed, flexible home cooking that will bring the love to every shelf in your pantry, fridge, and freezer.

Led by Yotam Ottolenghi and Noor Murad, the revered team of chefs at the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen gives everyday home cooks the accessible yet innovative Middle Eastern-inspired recipes they need to put dinner on the table with less stress and less fuss in a convenient, flexibound package.

One-Pot Meals), Shelf Love teaches readers how to flex with fewer ingredients, get creative with their pantry staples, and add playful twists to familiar classics.

All the signature Ottolenghi touches fans love are here—big flavors, veggie-forward appeal, diverse influences—but are distilled to maximize ease and creative versatility. These dishes pack all the punch and edge you expect from Ottolenghi, using what you’ve got to hand—that last can of chickpeas or bag of frozen peas—without extra trips to the grocery store. Humble ingredients and crowd-pleasing recipes abound, including All-the-Herbs Dumplings with Caramelized Onions, Mac and Cheese with Za’atar Pesto, Cacio e Pepe Chickpeas, and Crispy Spaghetti and Chicken.

With accessible recipe features like MIYO (Make It Your Own) that encourage ingredient swaps and a whimsical, lighthearted spirit, the fresh voices of the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen will deliver kitchen confidence and joyful inspiration to new and old fans alike.

"I must say I am very impressed. Quality ingredients and a generous amount. Off and on I have tried different subscription boxes and they never quite meet my expectations ... Hardcover Cook doesn’t disappoint. I’m already anxious for my next delivery.

Leslie S.

"So impressed with the ingredients and the gorgeous cookbook! Can’t wait to try some of the recipes! Also very excited what our next box might bring!"

Sarah P.

"My Hardcover Cook subscription has been great! The food items are nice and are adding new flavors to my pantry. And I never thought I'd make Japanese cuisine — it seemed out of reach, but this box made it feel approachable (and it turns out, it is!). I look forward to the next one."
