Ottolenghi likes manuka

New Zealand manuka honey is combined with walnuts and added to a radicchio, pecorino fiore sardo and lentil salad created by the high-profile London-based Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi for the Guardian. Ottolenghi writes: “I got a thorough introduction to manuka on a recent trip to New Zealand, where it features regularly on menus and in cocktails. Apart from its famous healing properties, manuka has a strong, woody flavour. Radicchio’s bitterness balances the rich sweetness of the honey.” Ottolenghi’s deli-restaurant branches, the self-named Ottolenghi, are located in the London suburbs of Islington, Notting Hill, Kensington and Belgravia.
