"Josh Katz cooks in Technicolor"
- Jay Rayner, The Guardian -
Josh's first book, Berber & Q; The Cookbook was published in May 2018 and contains 120 recipes from the restaurants and beyond, including the signature cauliflower shawarma, as well as the now legendary Berber & Q hummus. Lots of barbecued classics, perfect for sharing and pairing in different combinations.
The follow up, Berber & Q; On Vegetables was released in May 2022 and includes countless options for how to cook every type of veg, from a quick scorch in the pan and a flash of heat from the grill, to a low and slow roast, as well as methods for how to season and flavour using simple marinades, dustings of spice and deliciously moreish sweet and sour dressings.
