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

avid adventurer, January 1, 2013

Several new cookbooks came my way this Christmas, but when it came time to make something for a holiday potluck, I ended up passing the other books by and making a couple of different dishes from Plenty. I quite like the organization based on type of vegetable or at least vegetable family, rather than the more traditional part of the meal or course organization. The dishes have interesting combinations of flavors and textures, such as the pomegranate seeds in the burnt eggplant with tahini. The recipe and chapter introductions along with many colorful photographs mean that the book is makes good reading as well as good eating.
