Forget about the fact that it's a vegetarian's best friend, Plenty is the sort of cookbook that any home cook will fall for. It's as meaty as its meat-filled counterparts. -- Charlotte Druckman, food52.com
Ottolenghi's book Plenty rose to be a best seller in Britain on its release last year (it appeared here several months ago), and is among the most generous and luxurious nonmeat cookbooks ever produced, one that instantly reminds us that you don't need meat to produce over-the-top food. -- Mark Bittman, The New York Times
The book that launched the cult. The recipes not only made vegetarian food sexy (note: Ottolenghi wants you to know he loves meat), they also made Western cooks crave Eastern Mediterranean flavors. - Christine Muhlke, bon appetit
The flavors in Plenty are so bright, curious and new - to my palate at least - it made me wonder, where is our Middle Eastern Mario? And how quickly can Ottolenghi open in New York? -- Christine Muhlke, food52.com
