Yotam Ottolenghi's cod cakes in tomato sauce: with their sweet and slightly sharp sauce, these fish cakes capture much of the spirit of Sephardi food. They are delicate, almost brittle, very comforting and popular among Syrian Jews.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Fresh Figs, with syrupy balsamic reduction and a drizzle of chile oil for kick. Sounds just wonderful. You won't need the sugar for this one - would be great with Calivinegar Barrel Aged Balsamic!
