Galaxy Book Award Winner 2010

Winner of the Galaxy Food & Drink Book of the Year 2010.

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. 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, roots, squashes, onions, fruit, mushrooms and tomatoes, the breadth of colours, tastes and textures is extraordinary.

Synopsis

Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi, Jonathan Lovekin

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.

Reviews

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 *


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, Launceston Place, Maison Blanc and Baker and Spice, before starting his own eponymous group of restaurants/food shops, with branches in Notting Hill, Islington, Belgravia and Kensington.
