Overview

Plenty: Vibrant Recipes from London's Ottolenghi by Yotam Ottolenghi

A vegetarian cookbook from the author of Jerusalem Cookbook and other Ottolenghi cookbooks: A must-have collection of 120 vegetarian recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi featuring exciting flavors and fresh combinations that will become mainstays for readers and eaters looking for a brilliant take on vegetables.

Mastering the art of French cooking the Yotam Ottolenghi way: One of the most exciting talents in the cooking world, Yotam Ottolenghi's food inspiration comes from his Cordon Bleu training, Mediterranean background, and his unapologetic love of ingredients. "My approach can be the opposite to traditional French cooking, where everything is a little bit uniform and you work hard to process a sauce into the most fine and homogenous thing. I go the other way and use spices, herbs and other ingredients to create a sense of surprise." 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.

The Plenty cookbook: Plenty is the cookbook that launched Yotam Ottolenghi from a fabulous chef, London restaurant owner, and British newspaper columnist to an international food celebrity. In the Plenty cookbook, Yotam puts a spotlight on vegetarian restaurant-caliber recipes that every home cook can make. A vibrant photo accompanies every recipe in this visually stunning Ottolenghi cookbook. Essential for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike! The Plenty cookbook is indispensable for every home library.

Words can't describe my fondness for this cookbook. It is exactly the kind of food I want to be eating right now. The recipes are delicious and surprisingly simple. And although I live in Berkeley, CA and am able to find almost any ingredient I desire, Ottolenghi kindly uses mostly mainstream products. His passion for cooking and non-snobbish approach to writing his recipes are truly refreshing. This is a perfect cookbook for the experienced cook, as well as the beginner. And not just for vegetarians!

I purchased this book after seeing while on vacation in CA last summer. It is wonderful and I have made such interesting and flavorful vegeterian dishes from it. I have easily been able to make the dishes vegan when needed. Tonight we have the multi-vegetable paella and it was delicous. I highly recommd this book to any cook that is looking for interesting vegetarian dishes that will inspire you to think outside the box. You won't be disappointed.

The directions are very easy to follow and the results are delicious! This book is great for people who are hesitant about cooking (i.e. me). I do not have much confidence when it comes to the kitchen, but this book is a great learning tool. Also, I absolutely love meat and did not think that I can be satiated with all-vegetable meals. These recipes proved me wrong! The pictures are gorgeous and the short stories for each recipe are intriguing.

This cookbook is wonderful. Ottolenghi is fearless with vegetables. He treats them as sturdy rather than delicate like many vegetarian cookbooks do. This is not a book for the novice. Ottolenghi assumes for example that you already have your own pastry receipe. If one is familiar with technique, this is a wonderful addition to your kitchen.

This book turned out to be everything I wanted in a great vegetarian (But not limited to vegetarianism) recipe book. Many of the ingredients can have meat added to them though, and still taste just as great. A lot of the ingredients can be found at Wal-Mart or Target, which is great for basically anyone.  Not only that but the recipes are easy to follow, and almost always come out tasting great. My family uses this book around 2-3 nights a week.

Wonderful cookbook. You wouldn't even realize it has no meat in it! (and I'm a meat eater).

A real celebration of vegetables. The author has an acute sense for combining flavors to create innovative dishes. I used this book during a year of catering vegetarian meals and every recipe I tried got rave reviews.

The combinations and spices used have you salivating while reading the ingredient list. Straight forward recipes, nothing fussy or difficult, a cookbook worthy of its praise.

Simply the best of the vegetarian cookbooks i own (and i have quite a number). I do not like meat, so though not a strict vegetarian, i am always on search for new & interesting meatless recipes. "Plenty" is excellent, combining modular recipe structure, great taste combinations and non-complicated techniques. The recipes have a distinct Mediterranean flavor.
