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.


The Best!


I purchased this as a gift, have given it twice before as gifts and always receive great feedback. The recipes in this book are so interesting and easy to make that people do use it. I turn to it all the time when I want an interesting side dish. Of course some recipes are more involved but I gave this to a friend who was a very basic cook and when we we went to lunch there he had made three of the dishes from the book, all delicious. I love using it and when asked for a cook book recommendation it is always the first one I go for. Also I must mention the excellent service I received with my last order of this book. I had left it very close to Christmas, needed to order online and this was delivered two days after ordering!

A thing of beauty!


This is a most beautiful book...from the elegant graphics on the cover, to the soft tactile fabric! The recipes are mostly simple, tasty and innovative and do not scream 'vegetarian' at you, and the photos are excellent. I bought this for a friend but will have to buy another for myself.


One of the best cookbooks


Perfect for delicious, vegetarian dishes that don't seem vegetarian. Want to get the family to eat more veg? Try these recipes.

Excellent Book


This title is excellent and I highly recommend it. I bought this copy as a gift and will probably use it as a gift idea in the future.


I just love Yotam Ottolenghi & his recipes.


I've just become pescatarian & wanted more interesting recipes.



Great book


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.

A beautiful book


Whether a vegetarian or not, this book inspires one to look at the type of food we eat.

Plenty to tempt you in 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.

Randwick, NSW, Australia


Fantastic book


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.

"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 *
