Roasted Sumac Chicken with Za’atar and Lemon

I must be one of Yotam Ottolenghi’s greatest fans.  I love his style of middle-eastern fusion cuisine.  I own all six of his cookbooks, the most recent being Sweet, and I hardly ever make desserts but I had to complete my set.  My first purchase was Jerusalem and over the years I have filled in […]
