Yotam Ottolenghi is an Israeli-British chef, restaurant owner, and food writer. The co-owner of five delis and restaurants in London, and the author of bestselling cookbooks, including Ottolenghi (2008) which sold 100,000 copies - Plenty (2010), Jerusalem (2012) and now " Plenty More "; Ottolenghi developed a cult following due to inventive dishes, characterised by the foregrounding of vegetables, unorthodox flavour combinations, and the abundance of "noisy" Middle Eastern ingredients.
Ottolenghi said, "I want drama in the mouth." Ottolenghi's recipes rarely fit within traditional dietary or cultural categories. He explained that his mission is to "celebrate vegetables or pulses without making them taste like meat, or as complements to meat, but to be what they are. "It does no favor to vegetarians, making vegetables second best."
Ottolenghi's bestselling cookbooks have proven influential, with The New York Times noting that they are "widely knocked-off for their plain-spoken instructions, puffy covers, and photographs [that Ottolenghi] oversees himself, eschewing a food stylist". In 2014, the London Evening Standard remarked that Ottolenghi had "radically rewritten the way Londoners cook and eat", and Bon Appétit wrote that he had "made the world love vegetables".
