  Plenty good to say

I have just ordered my copy of this recipe book, along with the Ottolenghi Cookbook, after I borrowed my friend's copies. I used them constantly for two weeks, using the recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I got them in such a state, I've had to buy her some replacements!

What I love about this book is how simple the recipes are: aside from maybe one or two ingredients, such as sumaq and za'atar, almost every home kitchen cook will know what the ingredients are and can easily get them locally. I live in the Yorkshire countryside, so getting to a well stocked fine food shop or deli is not an option without considerable forward planning. This book, however, makes fantastic creative and colourful use of everyday veg, grains and pulses.

Brilliant for dinner parties - make a great big plate to share and blow away your guests!

  Gorgeous cookbook with really practical recipes

This is one of those perfect cookbooks that look stunning, have gorgeous recipes..... and are practical enough for you to actually use! This is definitely a cookbook that will get lots of use in my kitchen.

This cookbook focuses on vegetable recipes but Yotam Ottolenghi isn't veggie himself and you certainly don't feel as though you're missing anything when deciding what to cook from his book. The food itself looks beautiful and has a very strong Mediterranean and Eastern Europe/Middle East feel.

If you are vegetarian I'd say this book is a must, even if you aren't though it is well worth having on your shelf. In fact since I bought this book for myself I've just ordered another copy for my sister
