5.0 out of 5 stars EXACTLY the same book April 10 2011
By Serge Pilon TOP 500 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
Format:Hardcover
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:

Roots
Funny Onions
Mushrooms
Courgettes and Other Squashes
Capsicums
Brassicas
The Mighty Aubergine
Tomatoes
Leaves Cooked and Raw
Green Things
Green Beans
Pulses
Cereals
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love At First Read April 21 2012
Format:Hardcover
When I first heard about this book, I was very excited by the buzz and that it was a vegetarian cook book made it all the most enticing to me... the stamp of approval from Bonnie Stern who is no slouch in wondeful cook book department herself didn't hurt either.

What I can say is this: it is a very beautifully put together book. Lovely photos and innovative ideas with fresh spins on old faves, but this is not a book for vegans or those wanting to have a moderate diet which I guess is not really the point of this book at all. It celebrates vegetables in a classy yummy way and it is the book I would look to to create a luxurious vegetarian feast for guests that were okay with dairy.

Don't get me wrong: I love this book; it is a pleasure to read and the recipes work well. I wish I could eat this way every day but alas must strive to be vegan more often than not because I m just too old to do otherwise. Having said that, this is my go to book for a splurge and for entertaining. I love all of the flavours and they take me back to my time in Israel.

Buy it and savour!!

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!

This is a very creative approach to food.....the combinations are interesting but, unfortunately, almost everything is fried. It does inspire.
