This week, to celebrate the launch of the Genius Recipes cookbook, we're taking a look back at a few of our Genius Recipes cooks.

There is an undeniable genius behind the well-executed vegetables, open-armed embrace of fresh herbs, and wonderful personality in every one of the Yotam Ottolenghi's recipes. His recipes are complex without being overwhelming—meaning you can dive into brilliant Israeli- and Mediterranean-inspired recipes, from salads to cake, and feel jump-up-and-down happy about the result. Lucky for us, Ottolenghi has penned four breathtaking cookbooks, but when you don't want to get lost in your cookbook library, might we suggest this Ottolenghi recipe starter pack?
