    I pre-ordered this book, because Yotam Ottolenghi's recipes are almost always huge successes for me. I like his sense of flavor and some of the surprising combinations he comes up with. I thought this book would be perfect for weeknight cooking. Unfortunately, I find the recipes aren't so much "simple" as "less complicated, sometimes, but also frequently less flavorful".First, the good. I do like that he lays out his criteria and has a SIMPLE acr...

    Ottolenghi did it again! I have yet to make a bad meal out of any of his cookbooks. This one is even better than the others because the recipes are, in fact, simple. This past Tuesday, in anticipation of Thanksgiving, we made EIGHT dishes! Each one was fantastic. Now I’m hungry...

    This has my minty baked rice with pomegranate and olive relish, which I make at least once every few months. It's incredible. The majority of this cookbook is vegetables in new and surprising ways. I really love the S-I-M-P-L-E concept. L-- Lazy cooking-- is my favorite, since it mostly involves throwing things into a pot or a pan and let it simmer away.

    Yotam Ottolenghi is a person who has changed the way people view food. Difficult to categorize, his style works on the premise that food is all about flavour and unorthodox combinations (prior to receiving Ottolenghi Simple I had made one of his recipes from an earlier cookbook -- Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/ Pomelo and Star Anise -- if this is not an unorthodox pairing, I'm not sure what is! But what I can say is that it was a flavor memory my mo...

    I rarely buy cookbooks, but Ottolenghi recipes have proven to consistently be delicious, and this book recognizes that his usual recipes are a tad on the "where am I even going to find that and why does he assume everyone has rosewater and sumac in their pantry" variety. There are some really promising ones in here- and the "simple" method is nice for recognizing that sometimes you have lots of time, but don't want to get a bunch of ingredients; ...

    I think the title is misleading. Not simple in any way. Disappointing.

    Great simple recipes which are 10 ingredients or less. Have already cooked a few of these and love it.

    Grosse déception pour moi. Les recettes sont peut-être "simplifiées" par rapport à Plenty et Jerusalem, mais on est loin de la série de recettes one pot permettant de cuisiner du Ottolenghi chaque soir de la semaine promise dans la description du livre. Il n'y a finalement pas beaucoup de recettes qui sont des repas en soi, et beaucoup de trucs qui doivent être combinés avec une ou deux autres composantes pour faire un repas complet. Vraim...

    A real disappointment. The first few books--Ottolenghi, Jerusalem, and Plenty--were all packed with delicious recipes for beautiful foods. I own them all and use them all, and have rated them Five Stars here and elsewhere. I love them, truly. But this one? I am only interested in making four dishes, and that's because they're much like other recipes from previous books. A lot of dishes use rose harissa, which I don't like at all. Other herb and s...

    Review copy provided by the publisherYotam Ottolenghi’s streak is unbroken: SIMPLE delivers delicious, accessible, quintessentially Ottolenghi dishes for the home cookIn Yotam Ottolenghi's latest cookbook, OTTOLENGHI SIMPLE, the simple isn’t just a euphemism for “everyday” or “weeknight cooking” or “30 minutes or less.” SIMPLE is the system underlying the recipes. Short on time, 10 Ingredients or less, Make ahead, Pantry, Lazy or ...

    There is always something to take away from Ottolenghi's books. This one would be good for someone starting out wanting to make decent nutritious food in a Middle Eastern style. The ideas and standouts for me, personally, were: Cauliflower "tabbouleh" (p.46), Pumpkin, saffron and orange soup (p.54), Roasted whole cauliflower (p.94 for the technique), chraimeh sauce (p.104), whole-roasted celery root with coriander seed oil (p.128), Honey and yogu...

    The latest Yotam Ottolenghi cookbook makes great play of the reduced ingredients list for the recipes.This is possibly daunting if you aren't familiar with previous Ottolenghi books which need dozens of ingredients, some seemingly only available on line or from specialist groceries. SIMPLE has a list of basics which are needed for the recipes, and I have found all of them in local (rural) supermarkets.So far we've made several of the baked rice r...

    SIMPLE : Short on time, Ingredients: 10 or less, Make ahead, Pantry, Lazy, Easier than you think! Simple.Have all the books except the Sweet as we don’t eat dessert unless out somewhere. They are amazing cookery books and like fabulous reference books to the cuisines mixed therein. BUT often way too difficult and complicated for me, a home cook. Simple is exactly the answer. Amazing approachable and very doable cookery with great ingredients an...

    quite simply, a fantastic cookbook. presentation, photographs, layout, even the thickness of the paper stock are all excellent. but what really stands out are the fabulous recipes. Yotam Ottolenghi is a genius at pairing Mediterranean spices, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and, to a lesser extent, meats and fish, in marvelous ways. his versatility with yogurt -- an ingredient i'm not fond of ... yet -- is amazing. it's an exciting read!

    I read a lot of cookbooks. A lot of them hold such promise, then fall by the wayside under a pillow of hypothetical ingredients I'm just never going to gather. Then there are others that I know will be not only full of promise, but full of real life deliciousness - Ottolenghi's cookbooks are a prime example of the latter. I can't wait to try out so many of these recipes.

    FabulousFantastic book for recipes which are both ‘simple’ and tasty. Ottolenghi doesn’t do bland food and this book is testament to just that. The recipes are also visually stunning on the plate and wonderful for casual entertaining, especially where time is limited.
  • Kathleen

    Love it! Like the title says, simple! Easy recipes which are great for a midweek dinner but still packed with flavour. It's easy to get stuck in a rut with dinners when you come home from work tired and uninspired but Ottolenghi shows tasty doesn't have to take hours.

    Hi easy & my easy have different definitions. So I enjoyed the book but didn't try ant recipes (criminal!) many ingredients assumed "simple" are not that easy to come across in Mid-TN (unless you want to drive to Nashville, and if I do that, I'd rather have someone else cook for me.)
  • Ellen

    I have been having fun with this recipe book as there are many ideas to explore. There is a ranking system for why recipes have been declared simple such as lazy, pantry, make ahead which is helpful. I have many more recipes in this book to try.

    After making multiple recipes from this cookbook I can say they are not overly complicated and they taste absolutely delicious!!!

    Not my cup of tea. Not simple, too many ingredients that I never use,and too many recipes with fennel and anise-type flavors.
  • Mary C
    1970-01-01
    I really wanted to enjoy the recipes in this book but there were so many that one or two ingredients just weren't things I cooked with. Doesn't make it a bad cookbook just not for me.
