The other day I had one of the most stunningly awesome meals of my life and it wonderfully affirmed the deep pleasure of being alive. That counts as ‘happy’!
The Editor had cooked kofte and a tomato, herb and feta salad from the excellent cookbook Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi ( homepage here ) and Sami Tamimi. The two recipes The Editor cooked in that meal alone make the Jerusalem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi worthy of purchase (click that link to do so, or if you prefer click here to purchase the Kindle version of the Jerusalem cookbook ), but then he went on and made other recipes that were just as good! It’s obviously brilliant to have found a reliable and cookbook that scales heights. It’s even more obvious how deeply irksome it is that The Editor is now quite clearly a far better cook than me. Bugger!
