“Ottolenghi: The Cookbook,” Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi.

“Some people keep an anthology of short stories on their bedside table, but I have a stack of cookbooks. I read them more for fun than for recipes, and most recently I’ve been paging through ‘Ottolenghi: The Cookbook.’ It’s gorgeous, a collaboration between two extremely talented chefs who own and operate a string of restaurants in London. For me, even the names of the recipes are like music—‘Figs with young pecorino and honey’ and ‘Burnt eggplant with tahini and oregano’—lulling me to sleep.”
