Ostro: The pleasure that comes from slowing down and cooking with simple ingredients.
In JuliaBusuttil Nishimura's cookbook 'Ostro', she guides us through the uniquely satisfying experience of making pasta or pizza dough from scratch, with recipes such as ricottatortellini with butter, sage and hazelnuts or taleggio and potato pizza. She also shares plenty of flavourful salads and simple meals for days when time is scarce, such as roasted cauliflower and wheat salad or tray-roasted chicken with grapes, olives and walnuts. Baking and desserts, too, needn't be overly complicated.
