Read Plenty Online Free - With his fabulous restaurants and bestselling Ottolenghi Cookbook, Yotam Ottolenghi has established himself as one of the most exciting 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, 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.

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 Jerusalem of an Italian-...

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 points of the book. Th...

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 super birthday or Chr...

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 the fact that O...

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 have all the...

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 excellent....

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 recipes I de...

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, so it's st...

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 you use th...
