Book Description

March 9 2011
Yotam Ottolenghi is one of the most exciting new talents in the cooking world, with four fabulous, eponymous London restaurants and a weekly newspaper column that's read by foodies all over the world. Plenty is a must-have collection of 120 vegetarian recipes featuring exciting flavors and fresh combinations that will delight readers and eaters looking for a sparkling new take on vegetables. Yotam's food inspiration comes from his Mediterranean background and his unapologetic love of ingredients. Not a vegetarian himself, his approach to vegetable dishes is wholly original and innovative, based on freshness and seasonality, and drawn from the diverse food cultures represented in London. A vibrant photo accompanies every recipe in this visually stunning book. Essential for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike!

Product Description


"Plenty is one of those cookbooks you dribble over while flicking through its pages. [The recipes] demand to be eaten." The Guardian "Plenty takes an inspired and fresh approach to vegetarian cooking. Sumptuous photographs make this an ideal gift for all foodies." The Independent "The hottest cookbook of the year" The Guardian "He's a genius: his isn't exactly Middle eastern cooking - he's from Jerusalem - but it draws its very breath from the explosive colours and tastes of the region." The Scotsman "The man who sexed up veg." Evening Standard --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXACTLY the same book April 10 2011
By Serge Pilon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just want to mention that Plenty (white cover) and Plenty: Vibrant Vegetable Recipes From London's Ottolenghi are EXACTLY the same book! The only little differences are :
- the first is the original book published 4 the UK (2010), the other in the US (2011)
- the first uses grams, millilitres, the other uses cups, ounces and pounds. Both use tsp and tbsp
- the ingredients appear in the order they are used in the second book
- their covers are different but all images and recipes inside the books are EXACTLY identical
- some ingredients are named differently : double cream for heavy cream, caster sugar for sugar, broad beans for fava beans, etc.
- the quantities in the second book are really rounded : 400g asparagus is 1 lb
I bought the second book by mistake and I prefer the first one for the metric units.

What a wonderful book !

By Jennifer Cameron-Smith TOP 50 REVIEWER
In his introduction to this book, Yotam Ottolenghi writes that that each dish is based around one of his favourite ingredients. This has led to an idiosyncratic organisation of recipes: some components (such as aubergines) have their own chapter; others are organised botanically (such as brassicas) and others reflect associations that are part of the way Ottolenghi shapes his menus.
These recipes are based on meatless dishes and reflect eclectic influences including the Middle East, South East Asia and Latin America. The book is full of delicious, mouth-watering recipes.

The chapter headings may give some idea:

Funny Onions
Courgettes and Other Squashes
The Mighty Aubergine
Leaves Cooked and Raw
Green Things
Green Beans
Pasta, Polenta, Couscous
Fruit with Cheese

The recipes are accompanied by anecdotes and by mouth-wateringly beautiful photographs. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The amount of preparation required varies between dishes: some are quick and easy, others will require more time. But it's worth it. There is a recipe here for just about any occasion.

I first borrowed this book from the library, but quickly realised that I needed my own copy.

A note for American readers: the ingredients are listed in grams and millilitres rather than cups and ounces.

This is a wonderful book. I have made only a few recipes so far, because every time I try one (i.e. crunchy pappardelle), we crave it and make it several times. The flavours are fresh and "vibrant" and multiple ingredients compliment rather than overwhelm each other.

My son only eats raw vegetables and is very fussy, but actually likes recipes from this book. It must be because the vegetables are front and centre, enhanced by the recipes.

A family favourite - and I have a lot of cookbooks!
