I ate at an Ottolenghi on a recent trip to London and it was absolutely delicious. Fresh and simple, yet with surprisingly complex flavors. For me, it was exactly the type of food I like to cook and eat.

I thought it was characteristic of saffron that you need very little to get a lot of flavor?

Tomatoes & potatoes are also originally from the Americas, but they're all over the world now. (There's even a Ladino song about a rivalry btwn. the tomato & the eggplant!)
