Very interesting read as well as great looking recipes. However, since I am mainly on my own, some of the recipes are too 'long' for me to cook for one person.

One of the best cookery books I have. I cooked ten recipes the first weekend I received it. I am a professional cook for a family and am always looking for new tasty ideas and this is perfect. His other book Plenty is just as good

Mr Ottolenghi has three cookbooks in the top 30 on amazon - no mean feat - and his first book has spent 6 1/2 years in the top 100, and is still at number 65!! Why is he so popular? Can one person be a zeitgeist in their own right? If they can, then he is...

The recipes are clean, full of flavour, use a variety of ingredients, and more importantly for me at the moment, don't rely on mountains of meat... If we're going to encourage people to eat a broader variety of food, we have to make it flipping delicious!

The book is broken down into:

Tossed (tomato and pomegranate salad; raw beetroot and herb salad; crunchy root vegetables...)
Steamed (miso vegetables and rice, with black sesame dressing; lemon and curry leaf rice ...)
Blanched (seaweed, ginger and carrot salad; soba noodles with quick-pickled mushrooms...)
Simmered (tagliatelle with walnuts and lemon; fregola and artichoke pilaff...)
Braised (fennel with capers and olives; mushrooms, garlic and shallots with lemon ricotta...)
Grilled (butternut tataki and udon noodle salad; courgette baba ganoush, marrow with tomato and feta...)
Roasted (squash with cardamon and nigella seeds; honey roasted carrots with tahini yoghurt...)
Fried (polenta crisps with avocado and yoghurt; seared girollesl with black glutinous rice...)
Mashed (crushed puy lentils with tahini and cumin; cannelloni bean puree with pickled mushrooms and pita croutons...)
Cracked (membrillo and stilton quiche; corn and spring onion pancakes; spicy scrambled eggs...)
Baked (stuffed peppers with fondant swede and goat's cheese; winter saffron gratin; baked artichoke and pearled spelt salad...)
Sweetened (baked rhubarb with sweet labneh; quince poached in pomegranate juice; fig and goat's cheese tart...)

Utterly brilliant, I can think of no nicer way to eat my five a day...

I pre-ordered this cookbook some weeks before launch and have cooked 10+ recipes from it (what's the point in leaving an Amazon review on release day if you haven't even opened the book yet?). I own all of Ottolenghi's other books and I've purchased several for relative's birthdays and also cook 2-3 of his recipes every week... yes every week. When I heard there was a new cookbook out it was almost like Christmas as a child again.

Plenty More is 100% vegetarian, but even the most die-hard meat eaters will struggle to find something they dislike in this book. If you're starting out in vegetarianism/reducing meat intake or if you'reunsure how to use vegetables as centre-stage, or even if you just wanting to try some new ideas, then I would recommend this book above Plenty as the recipes seem a little more toned down, i.e. they seem to make use of easier to locate ingredients - if you have ever read the comments left on Ottolenghi's weekly Guardian food column then you'll know that his ingredients list is often a sticking point for some readers (personally I can't see why, I buy 95% of the ingredients from ASDA, and the rest from Waitrose). I suspect he has tried to reduce such criticism with this book, without sacrificing taste - no easy feat.

On the other hand, if you are already proficient with cooking vegetables and love to experiment, then I would recommend Plenty over this book, the recipes are that little bit more interesting and daring. That isn't to say Plenty More isn't up there with the best - it really is. I will be cooking from it for months and years to come, and that is a great feeling to get from a cookbook.

Negatives? The main disappointment for me is that there is no pasta section, and only 1-2 pasta-based recipes, plus a small handful of the recipes do appear at least superficially similar to Plenty but this is by no means enough to deduct even 1 star. 5/5!
