All through June, our Cookbook Club will be focused on Yotam Ottolenghi's repertoire, and we hope you'll join us. Normally we focus on one cookbook at a time, but this month we're all in on Ottolenghi—any (or all!) of his books are fair game to cook through. Read on for details on how to participate with the club and get started with more than a dozen of his recipes.

How to participate

1) Get the Book(s)

You can find some in the Food52 Shop (see below) or pick them up from your favorite local bookstore. Or, if you’re not ready to commit quite yet, check one out from your local library or borrow a copy from a friend.

2) Read & Cook

Rather self-explanatory, as this is one of the most important parts of participating in a cookbook club, right? If you’re not sure where to begin, take a page out of our Cookbook Editor Ali Slagle's playbook. When she reviews a cookbook, she reads through the entire introduction as well as 15 headnotes and recipes, and then cooks at least three recipes.

3) Share Your Opinions

We chat in our Facebook group all month long! Join the Cookbook Club here and post pictures of what you bake from the books and share reviews, too. Fill everyone in on what you thought of the dish (remember to share the recipe name, which book it came from, and even the page number, if possible). You can share photos on Instagram as well, just remember to tag them with #f52cookbookclub.
