Maureen: Yes, turkey meatballs certainly seem to be having their moment in the sun. Between this, and the ones we had from “Jersualem” and the ones from Gwenyth Paltrow, we’ve had our fair share. What do you think?
Nicholas: I like them.
Tim: Me too.
Maureen: But they could do with some sort of dip. Maybe yogurt with sumac or hummus or something, but it seems to be missing something.
Tim: You’re right. A dip would be nice. Maybe Ottolenghi has spoiled us because he has so many nice things to go with his mains.
Maureen: What do you think of the chickpea salad?
Nicholas: I don’t like it.
Maureen: I expected that. There’s cayenne pepper and sumac in there. That’s a lot of flavour for one boy, especially you.
Tim: I like it, though.
Maureen: So do I. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making this again. Yum.
