In Ottolenghi Simple, powerhouse author and chef Yotam Ottolenghi presents 130 streamlined recipes packed with his signature Middle Eastern-inspired flavors. Each dish can be made in 30 minutes or less, with 10 or fewer ingredients, in a single pot, using pantry staples, or prepared ahead of time for brilliantly, deliciously simple meals. Brunch gets a make-over with Braised Eggs with Leeks and Za'atar; Cauliflower, Pomegranate, and Pistachio Salad refreshes the side-dish rotation; Lamb and Feta Meatballs bring ease to the weeknight table; and every sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied by the spectacular Fig and Thyme Clafoutis. With more than 130 photographs, this is elemental Ottolenghi for everyone.

This is my first Ottolenghi experience. I know, shocking! The word 'Simple' won me over, along with great reviews from colleagues. It must be more simple then his other cookbooks, however the recipes we tried at home were not that 'simple' and we found ourselves substituting/ improvising because not all ingredients were in our pantry. A great experience non-the-less and even more curious to visit one of his veg restaurants in London. Oh, yes, food photography is on point!

I made a few recipes out of Simple, by Yotam Ottolenghi, one of my favorite "celebrity chefs." As compared to the recipes in Plenty, Plenty More, and Jerusalem, everything in Simple is easy to prepare, with ingredients you can find at your regular grocery stores. (That's not exactly true, since the store in Squamish ran out of harissa and I had to get it in Whistler instead, but that was unusual.) Like all the Ottolenghi cookbooks, you can expect beautiful photos and some simple but ingenious recipes. We really liked the papardelle with harissa, leeks and eggs, and roasted cherry tomatoes with Greek yogurt. I'm sure I will borrow this book more than once to try a few others. I think it will be very popular with everyone!

For me the starting point of an excellent cookbook occurs when I open the book, flip through a few pages and upon looking at the photos and scanning the recipes, I immediately am motivated to start shopping for ingredients, cooking and eating. I wanted to feel this way about Simple, but the food combinations seem odd and unappealing, the photos were similarly uninspiring. I keep on reopening the book in the hope of being "stirred" to begin cooking even just once or twice, to no avail. Neither an upscale sophisticated feel nor a warm homey sense were forthcoming. I know this book is in high demand- makes me think of the story " The Emperor's New Clothes". It will have a very short stint in my possession- I suspect it won't make it into my kitchen.

I was not enchanted with Yotam Ottolenghi's recent cookbooks. But "Simple" is one of the better cookbooks from him in the sense that it contains interesting recipes for dishes with ingredients that are mostly available to a normal home cook and do not require fancy preparation techniques while still adding a twist to a lot of dishes. It contains mostly vegetable dishes, but also has limited meat, seafood and dessert sections.

Simplicity + Ottolenghi's flavour magic = a top cookbook of the season.
