I have shelves full of cookbooks, but a special favorite must be Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi. A delightful and thoughtful gift from my dear friend Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook. Completely vegetarian, these innovative recipes are accompanied by drop-dead gorgeous photos. It is one of those treasures that travels to the kitchen and back to the coffee table for browsing and reading. Stunning photographs, innovative recipes, informative, and a must-have for vegetarian cooks. A pure pleasure to have access to this astounding book.
The author tells us he has divided the chapters in "a quite unsystematic way". Beginning with one of his favorite ingredients, he elaborates on a dish and enhances it. Though not a vegetarian himself, he is a master in his kitchen. Root vegetables, mushrooms, onions, squash, peppers, brassicas, eggplant, greens, tomatoes, pulses, grains, pasta and fruit and cheese and some most tempting egg dishes. I have bookmarked so many and can't wait to try more of these creative and nourishing recipes.
