Nopi’s Burrata with Blood Orange, Coriander Seeds & Lavender Oil

This is my go to dish whenever we’re in Blood Orange season. Not only is it beautiful to look at but the flavour combination is just incredible. Also, it is a simple to make (which is rather unusual for Ottolenghi) and you can prepare it ahead of time. No wonder I love serving it at dinner parties either on individual plates or on one big serving dish. Both have a wow factor and will leave your guests raving about it the next day! 😉

Roasted Red Pepper Risotto with Burrata & Pesto

Welcome Spring with this beautiful Risotto. It is comforting, satisfying and bursting with flavour. It has the perfect level of creaminess and feels even more indulgent thanks to the burrata. The pesto adds that extra bit of flavour and the rocket some freshness. To sum up, this could become one of your staple dishes as it will leave you wanting more – I’m drooling just looking at the pictures!!! 

Risotto is normally served as a starter, although here it takes centre stage as a vegetarian main course – it is just too gorgeous not to! Serve it to impress your guests or just for a cosy tête-à-tête at home – it is perfect for every situation!
