Fab-o Yotam dinner

This dinner was super good. I made two recipes from my new cookbook, Jerusalem by Yotam (Ottolenghi), and they did not disappoint. YO! The first was this roast cauliflower with hazelnuts, celery, pomegranate seeds and an incredible cinnamon/sherry vinaigrette/maple dressing. Who knew cauliflower and cinnamon loved each other so very much?! Not I, my friends, not I. But now I do. This will definitely be remade many a time in this house!

I'd finally soaked some garbanzos but as I'd bought King salmon today decided to make a basic hummus with them rather than some sort of main dish. Again, I turned to Jerusalem, and this is a hell of a hummus; it's one of my very favorite foods, and this one doesn't disappoint.

Finally, T grilled our salmon which he'd dressed with a cracked coriander-maple glaze. He's now using the leftover bittersweet chocolate (from my peppermint patty making) to craft some toasted hazelnut bark. Go T!
