Plenty is a must-have collection of 120 vegetarian recipes featuring exciting flavors and fresh combinations that will delight readers and eaters looking for a sparkling new take on vegetables. Yotam’s food inspiration comes from his Mediterranean background and his unapologetic love of ingredients. Not a vegetarian himself, his approach to vegetable dishes is wholly original and innovative, based on freshness and seasonality, and drawn from the diverse food cultures represented in London. A vibrant photo accompanies every recipe in this visually stunning book. Essential for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike!

An unpredicted turn, around the age of 30, saw Yotam come to London in 1998 to study cookery at the Cordon Bleu. Prior to that, whilst still living in his native Israel, he was pursuing a career in completely different spheres - academia and journalism.
He started off as an assistant at the pastry department at The Capital restaurant in Knightsbridge (which left a few mental blemishes but was, supposedly, a spirit building experience), and then moved on to become a pastry chef at the Kensington Place group of restaurants, headed by Rowley Leigh.
His next stop was at the famous Baker and Spice shop in Chelsea, where he eventually became the head pasty chef and gained some of his most valuable professional experience.
In 2002, he teamed with Noam Bar, Sami Tamimi and Jim Webb to set up Ottolenghi. This was, in all honesty, an instant success.
Yotam Ottolenghi writes a weekly column The New Vegetarian in the Guardian weekend Saturday magazine. Together with Sami he is the author of the Ottolenghi Cookbook, published by Ebury Press in 2008.
