    This is a fabulous cookbook. Without exception, everything I've tried here was fantastic and met with compliments to the chef. One thing to keep in mind, if you're cooking for large groups, or even if you're not, but especially if you are, read the recipes carefully and make sure you h...

    As a committed carnivore, I nonetheless really liked this book. Not because I could eat anything in it (there were maybe two recipes I could eat unaltered), but because I really felt inspired to think more critically, engage more actively, and work more creatively with how I do make th...

    Beautifully photographed veggie cookbook with roots in Middle Eastern Jewish cooking. Lots of eggplant and z'atar. I like British cookbooks because you can figure out what kinds of things are in upscale groceries over there. Apparently, it's MUCH EASIER to get halloumi. I'm interested ...

    Jonathan Lovekin's food photography is splendid, if not exactly ground-breaking. (Is there ground to break in food photography?) It may seem a bit odd to start a review of a cookbook by talking about the illustrations, but in this case I think they're one of the main selling p...

    ?At the centre of each dish, .. is an ingredient, one ingredient.? In his introduction to this book, Yotam Ottolenghi writes that that each dish is based around one of his favourite ingredients. This has led to an idiosyncratic organisation of recipes: some components (such as a...

    i grabbed this off a library shelf without really looking at it and was surprised to find that it was a) all vegetarian and b) really a great cookbook. It's got surprising and unusual combos of ingredients that all seem really appealing, great presentations, great photos. A friend of m...

    A stunningly gorgeous cookbook with some spectacular recipes. I would like to give it a 4.5. The book has a wonderful feel to it--you just want to hold it and never put it down. So far I have just tried the Green Couscous, which was excellent, but I have a ton of dishes tabbed to make....

    About 35 years ago I became a Lessmeatarian, but it was only when Mark Bittman introduced me to the term that I knew anyone had described my eating philosophy. The beautiful cookbook Plenty puts not-meat front and center with big, bold dishes that feature vegetables and grains. Whether...

    NEW! With ADDED UPDATES! This cookbook is so full of ZING and OOMPH that it can hardly be contained on the shelf, it buzzes and fizzes and sizzles and clamours to be taken down, lovingly caressed, and drooled over. How fusion is this? Ottolenghi was born and brought up in Jer...

    Maybe it's all the rave reviews I read before I got my hands on it, but I found Plenty pretty underwhelming. The writing itself is kind of stilted. The photos are beautiful, but I read most of the recipes in the book, and not a single one enticed me into making it (so they may be great...

    This is a beautiful cookbook with spectacular ideas. Stuffed onions? It makes you want to try everything the same day you see it. I tried a few...didn't have time for the whole shebang, but I came away with the thought that the individual pieces here are excellent. Unusual, really, but...

    I?ve been using these recipes for about a year and found many good ones that I use time and time again. Great recipes to assist in utilizing a healthy Mediterranean lifestyle. Now if I could just stick to it. Love so many ethnic foods that I have to keep going back to all sorts o...

    I read the intro, and skimmed through the recipes. Beautiful pictures, and intriguing flavor combinations, but really? Most of this was waaaaaay more work than I want to put into food. I suspect that it would be a challenge to get many of the spices (and some of the other ingredients) ...

    Visually stunning photographs of gourmet vegetarian faire! While on vacation, I attempted to take a photo of some food we were enjoying. Much to my surprise, I had a great deal of trouble! I now have a new appreciation for food photographers! Anyway, it's a beautiful cookbook with deli...

    I am not vegetarian but if you think vegetarian food is boring then you are very, very wrong. Ottolenghi does those extremely well. My favorite book of his is "Jerusalem" (not vegetarian!), but this is great if you're looking for new ways to make veggies delicious. Especially if you li...

    As so often occurs ? especially with cookbooks ? how much you?ll appreciate Israeli-born and London-based celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi?s cookbook Plenty depends on who you are. Serious foodies eager to try vegetarian and vegan dishes will thrill at the intricately crafted di...

    An absolutely terrific 99% vegetarian cookbook. If you like Middle Eastern food, you've got to read (and in my case, buy) this book. The emphasis is on fresh veggies and fruits, cooked simply but with wonderful spices so it's not just bland, predictable grill-plus-salad meals Especiall...

    One of of my favorite cookbooks in a long time (I basically quit buying cookbooks after Mark Bittman's amazing How to Cook Everything Vegetarian because nothing was as good as that one), but I have made a bunch of stuff from this one and it's awesome. The instructions are particularly ...

    Plenty is the sort of cookbook that will make you hungry, even if you are actually eating while reading it. Whatever you might be eating does not seem nearly as satisfying as the dishes Yotam Ottolenghi collects in this rather sizeable volume, which includes recipes that previously app...

    Super foods in abundance! This book is full of unique but simple vegetarian recipes that make eating healthier easy. The recipes are easily adaptable for vegans and meat eaters alike and don?t leave anyone feeling like they are ?eating side dishes? if you have a family with mixed...

    The shakshuka. Just try the Shakshuka, that is all. (Although I won't object if you use a lot less oil than Mr Ottolenghi finds necessary.) ...

    Plenty by the British Yotam Ottolenghi is Amsterdam's most popular cookbook this year and supposedly the most popular vegetarian cookbook in The Netherlands ever. And not without a reason. I've never come across a more interesting selection of delicious vegetarian recipes and love th...

    I told my mom about one of his recipes, which is very similar to one of hers, though with twice the ingredients and only half as good. She asked me what was different and then proceeded to wryly mock his choice of herbs. She's right: this isn't bad but he's trying too hard. Also, lovag...

    Echt een geweldig boek met fantastische recepten. De spotlights staan op groenten, veel smaken hebben een duidelijke match met het Midden-Oosten. Omdat Ottolenghi met veel smaken en aroma's werkt is de ingredintenlijst soms ellenlang. Exotische ingredinten worden niet geschuwd. Maa...

    This is the vegetarian recipe collection from Israeli Yotam Ottolenghi who is the owner of Ottolenghi restaurant in London, UK. I am flawed by this book. Rarely do I arrange more than one week of my dinners by the recipes in one book. I have been doing just that with this book for the ...

    Although I love delicious warm food, cooking is something I would never enjoy no matter what.Stirring pots on the stove has never been a pleasure, nor has my imagination for mixing ingredients been more than blunt. After so many failed attempts and wasted time following cooking blogs r...

    Terrific vegetable vegetarian cooking, light years away from the worthy stodgy of hunza pie and its ilk. (Yes, I did make it once, but only once). Ottolenghi's combinations are sometimes unexpected but always successful. And most make great accompaniments to meat if you're a carnivore,...

    What a fabulous selection of vegetarian recipes and photos. I cannot wait to start cooking! I'm not a vegetarian but it makes me tempted to become one. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those who don't like cooking, as it definitely encourages one to do so. Also a su...

    A wide range of creative, tasty, makeable recipes, and a well-organised and attractive book. I didn't enjoy the writing style (I know, a minor point!) and I wish there were some breakfast/dessert/baking recipes - Delia's vegetarian collection, for example has them, even though most des...

    I'm surprised by how much I love this. I only got it to qualify for free shipping on an order and because of a bit of idle curiosity after a friend had waxed lyrical about the author's 'Jerusalem' cookbook (I really DON'T need any more Middle Eastern themed cookbooks). This book is...
