With his fabulous restaurants and bestselling Ottolenghi Cookbook, Yotam Ottolenghi has established himself as one of the most exciting new talents in the world of cookery and food writing. This exclusive collection of vegetarian recipes is drawn from his column 'The New Vegetarian' for the Guardian's Weekend magazine, and features both brand-new recipes and dishes first devised for that column.

Yotam's food inspiration comes from his strong Mediterranean background and his unapologetic love of ingredients. Not a vegetarian himself, his approach to vegetable dishes is wholly original and innovative, based on strong flavours and stunning, fresh combinations. With sections devoted to cooking greens, aubergines, brassicas, rice and cereals, pasta and couscous, pulses, tofu, roots, squashes, onions, fruit, mushrooms and tomatoes, the breadth of colours, tastes and textures is extraordinary.

Featuring vibrant, evocative food photography from acclaimed photographer Jonathan Lovekin, and with Yotam's voice and personality shining through, Plenty is a must-have for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

About The Author

Yotam Ottolenghi's path to the world of cooking and baking has been anything but straightforward. Having completed a Masters degree in philosophy and literature whilst working on the news desk of an Israeli daily, he made a radical shift on coming to London in 1997. He started as an assistant pastry chef at the Capital and then worked at Kensington Place and Launceston Place, where he ran the pastry section. Yotam subsequently worked for Maison Blanc and then Baker and Spice, before starting his own eponymous group of restaurants/food shops, with branches in Notting Hill, Islington and Kensington.

      I was after a collection of interesting vegetarian recipes and this fits the bill. Delicious food ideas but not too elaborate or intimidating for home cooks.

        Comments about Plenty:

        As meat becomes more expensive and health reporters and medicos say too much protein is bad for you I thought I would try this book. Some of the dishes I will probably never attempt but there are plenty here for a competent cook to attempt and succeed at.

            I love how it is divided by main ingredients, especially when you have a vegetable growing in the garden and don't know what to make.

              There is little not to love about this book.
              Amazing (but time consuming) recipes.
              Certainly a go to when you want that fabulous salad when entertaining

              Love this book so much. It's become a fave in my kitchen . Yotam is so inspiring with his veggies but you don't have to be vegetarian to love these recipes. Some of the dishes are to be used as side dishes with meats
              As a main dish the mushroom Lasagne is amazing. Very rich but amazing none the less

              "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 *
