Mr Ottolenghi, we are indebted to you!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plenty (Hardcover)
As a vegetarian of many years standing I am extremely pleased that Ottolenghi has produced this beautiful and creative cook book for us.
Do not doubt that it is beautiful. From the softly padded white minimalist design of the cover to the colourful and enticing images within.
The fact that this book refuses to follow the `starters, mains and sweets' of other books makes me love it even more. I do not particularly want a section on puddings (the absence of which was critically noted by a previous reviewer). I want a book crammed full of delicious food which Ottolenghi more than substantially provides here.
Read Colin J Hird's testimony to this book above. I'm not even sure that Mr. Hird is a vegetarian but his review is beautifuly accurate.
Ignore the doubters. This book is easily as impressive as his first and In terms of vegetarian cuisine it sets a very high bench mark indeed.

I agree with the comment about not wanting a section on puddings. Far too many vegetarian cookbooks have a largish chapter on puddings, the vast majority of which are to be found in so many non-vegetarian cookbooks or specialist dessert cookbooks.
