    I am a fan of Ottolenghi recipes. I follow their Guardian column ‘The New Vegetarian’. I find their recipes fresh, modern, bright and fun. So far I have tried couple of eggplant recipes, pistachio cookies and baked okra. All came out great. Their recipes in Guardian-online are fun as well.

    Having said that, I wish they had serving suggestions in this book for recipes. It would also help to have some sample menus, specially for someone new to Mediterranean cooking.

    I live in US and as such the book is cumbersome to use because of metric system used throughout. I don’t mind that much, but it would have been nice to include a conversion table somewhere. Hopefully, there will be a US edition soon, but I could not wait for it to come out.

    The book is beautifully laid out and the pictures are very tempting.

    Overall, I like the book a lot.

    Great book with original recipes. Lots of tasty salad-type dishes, just like their shops in London. Amazon never seems to have it in stock. Tip: order it from; it’s roughly the same price.

    I bought this book at their restaurant in London (Ottolengui)and I have to say, the book has exceeded my already high expectations. The saladas specially are amazing. Good tips all along too.

    I learned about this ccokbook from a friend who had lived in London for several years. I was enchanted by the stories of the two owners. And then I started to read the recipes. The ingredients and combination of flavors sounded amazing! So I borrowed the cook book, made fennel gratin, cauliflower fritters with lime yogurt dipping sauce and honey cilantro lamb chops. Every recipe produced delicious food! Needless-to-say I quickly purchased my own copy and look forward to cooking my way through the rest of the book.

    This cookbook is amazing with fresh ideas for healthy (mostly) and delicious food. My only issue (not a complaint) is that some of the ingredients may be difficult to track down for American cooks. I live in Chicago and still do not have access to all of the ingredients listed in the book. Everything I have made has been delicious- the recipes are straightforward and the pictures are lovely.
