Anniversary lunch at NOPI – Soho

We have always been huge fans of Yotam Ottolenghi, his Middle Eastern / Mediterranean fusion cooking, restaurants and delis – I have some of his cookbooks and keep trying new recipes from them that are healthy food, rather than health food – all made with fresh ingredients, and very vegetable-focussed. For our fifth anniversary lunch, we decided to head to his new restaurant NOPI in Soho to celebrate.

Olemme jo pitkään fanittaneet Yotam Ottolenghia ja hänen ruokaansa, jonka tyyli on fuusioitunut Lähi-Idän ja Välimeren mauista, sekä hänen ravintoloitaan ja deli puoteja  – minulla on muutamia Ottolenghin keittokirjoja ja kokeilen niistä usein uusia reseptejä, jotka ovat kaikki olleet terveellisiä, ja herkullisia – ruoka on melko vihannes keskittynyttä, muttei kasvisruokaa, ja koostuu aina tuoreista raaka-aineista. Juhlistaaksemme meidän 5-vuotis hääpäivää päätimme suunnata lounaalle hänen uusimpaan ravintolaansa Sohossa, Nopiin.

We started with roast aubergine, tamarind yoghurt, pickled lemon and pistachios.

Aloitimme paahdetulla munakoisolla, jonka lisukkeena oli tamarind jogurttia, pikkelöityä sitruunaa ja pistaasipähkinöitä

Rizwan got me a new book from the restaurant, a signed copy of NOPI by Yotam Ottolenghi and Ramael Scully.

Sain Rizwanilta lahjaksi uuden Yotam Ottolenghin ja Ramael Scullyn keittokirjan, signeeratun NOPI:n kopion. Pääsee taas kokeilemaan uusia reseptejä!
