Yotam Ottolenghi – Plenty More: Competition

I am a big fan of Yotam Ottolenghi, From the moment my brother and I were exploring the streets of Kensington when we first arrived in London and stumbled across his now closed branch at 1 Holland Street to today, he has never failed to impress me.

The Israeli born, London based chef has released a series of brilliant cookbooks over the past few years and, in September 2014, his most recent cookbook “Plenty More” was released.

I was a big fan of the original “Plenty” cookbook which was released in 2011. I might be a meat eater, but Ottolenghi’s creative Mediterranean influenced vegetarian recipes changed the way I thought about vegetarian food. The way that he uses vegetables and flavours to create dishes is truly brilliant and makes one realise just how amazing vegetarian meal options can be. Several of the dishes in the original “Plenty” have become staples in my home.

When I heard that Yotam Ottolenghi was releasing a second vegetarian cookbook “Plenty More”, I was excited as I knew there would be some great recipes in there. When my copy arrived in the mail I was not disappointed. “Plenty More” builds on the Middle Eastern influences of the original Plenty and incorporates influences from Thailand, Japan, India and the Caribbean. Simple ingredients combine with exotic spices, resulting in some amazing dishes. There are no rules, and flavours and influences are mixed and switched about with apparently careless, but actually purposeful abandon. If you haven’t yet been sold on the idea that vegetarian dishes can be filling, tasty and complex, this could very well be the book that changes your way of thinking.

I have 2 copies of Yotam Ottolenghi’s “Plenty More” to give away to readers of The City Lane and would love for you to  be as inspired by the recipes contained within its pages as I am.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
