This morning I dredged the latest issue of Cuisine from my sodden mailbox (our bicycling postie must love all the precipitation we're having this month), and during my initial random flick-through stopped at an article about chef and restaurateur Yotam Ottolenghi and his new cookbook Plenty.
Cuisine describes Ottolenghi's recipes as 'effortless, simple yet surprising and utterly appealing'. Not overly creative but true nonetheless judging purely by the recipe names and images (...Puy Lentil Galettes, Caramelised Garlic Tart, Green Pancakes with Lime Butter). It's funny that a non-vegetarian would write a cookbook that is entirely vegetarian but I'm so pleased he has. Now I'd really like to visit Ottolenghi in Notting Hill. Such a pity it's over 18,000 km away! These photos will just have to suffice for now.
