Jerusalem arrived today, had a first quick look -- quite nice. Beautiful book again (cover, paper). I think the structure is more straight forward in Plenty, but the recipes seem delicious nonetheless.

it's a very different book. there are lots of recipes, but it's not strictly a recipe collection. the point of it is that he and his business partner grew up only a couple of miles from each other, but the business partner is palestinian and ottolenghi is jewish.

I smell a sitcom. In fact that would be a good name for it.

Egg is no meat. Nor fish. Simple.

because it came first? who knows. i don't believe in that stuff. i just find it a lighter and more pleasing way to eat ... between carnitas tacos.

Babies are crunchy, but fetuses are often quite delicious.

I'm with you. I don't eat lots of meat, but I very much enjoy it when I do. The reason I brought up the vegan thing was because I was asked to cook for a mother and son that want to eat that way (the husband eats anything). Gluten free, as well, which is not a problem. I am just hesitant in my ability to remain interested cooking strictly vegan 3/4 nights a week, even if I am being paid to do it.

My recollection is that most of the things I have made from Plenty involved butter...but I could be wrong.

Also, many of the recipes say things like "serve with a roasted leg of lamb for a real treat" and that might upset the militant vegans out there.
