Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Ottolenghi, acclaimed British restaurateur and author of the Guardian's New Vegetarian column, offers a vibrant and versatile collection of mouth-watering dishes that elevate vegetables from paltry side-dish status to superstar prominence. He combines previously published recipes with an array of new offerings that spotlight everything from root vegetables and mushrooms to legumes and grains. Highlights include leek fritters, lentils with broiled eggplant, quinoa and grilled sourdough salad, and a stunningly gorgeous salad he calls tomato party that combines multicolored tomatoes, couscous, and several herbs. Greens, both cooked and raw, receive ample attention in dishes such as chard and saffron omelets, green pancakes with lime butter, and chard cakes with sorrel sauce. He dedicates entire chapters to eggplant and tomatoes, showing the versatility of these staples in a variety of preparations. Lentils are also given proper homage in dishes such as Puy lentil galettes and Catelluccio lentils with tomatoes and Gorgonzola. Most recipes are accompanied by dazzling full-color photos that are sure to whet the appetite. While Ottolenghi may not be a well-known name to American food lovers, this excellent collection will most likely put him on the map. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Review:

"Forget about the fact that it's a vegetarian's best friend, Plenty is the sort of cookbook that any home cook will fall for. It's as meaty as its meat-filled counterparts." Charlotte Druckman, food52.com

Review:

"Any food lover who has visited London in recent years knows these gourmet take-out shops from Kensington to Notting Hill. The food is fresh and smart and so is this book. Yes, many of these recipes will require special ingredients — orange-flower water and special varieties of radicchio to name two, but you can get through most of this repertoire with what is available at any good market. Clearly, someone with a brain and a palate constructed these recipes: Pasta and Fried Zucchini Salad, Bittersweet Salad (with blood oranges, pine nuts, and ricotta), Black Pepper Tofu, and Lentils with Tomatoes and Gorgonzola. Simple food is never easy, it often disappoints, and an appealing idea often turns into a lackluster dish, but Plenty gives the home cook plenty of new ideas and recipes, especially if one is seeking a new way to cook — one with less meat and more flavor." Christopher Kimball, Founder and Editor, America's Test Kitchen

Review:

"The flavors in Plenty are so bright, curious and new — to my palate at least — it made me wonder, where is our Middle Eastern Mario? And how quickly can Ottolenghi open in New York?" Christine Muhlke, food52.com

I was initially excited by what this cookbook promised, but my enthusiasm has waned after trying some of the recipes at home. It's been a mixed bag. Saffron cauliflower with onions, raisins, and olives? Could have been better. Butternut squash with allspice, cardamom, limes, chiles, cilantro and tahini? A perplexing mashup that didn't work at all. Roasted eggplant with buttermilk sauce and pomegranate seeds? Delicious. So...go ahead and try it, but respect your gut response to any given recipe. If you think something's too weird to work, you're probably right.

This cookbook is wonderful. The recipes are packed with flavor. A great way to incorporate more vegetables in your diet if you are not a big fan of vegies.

Vegetables treated with the same regard as expensive organic meats. The recipes are creative and richly rewarding. Vegetables treated to this much attention yield thrilling results.
