5.0 out of 5 stars EXACTLY the same book, April 10, 2011
This review is from: Plenty: Vibrant Vegetable Recipes from London's Ottolenghi (Hardcover)
I just want to mention that Plenty (white cover) and Plenty: Vibrant Vegetable Recipes From London's Ottolenghi are EXACTLY the same book! The only little differences are :
- the first is the original book published 4 the UK (2010), the other in the US (2011)
- the first uses grams, millilitres, the other uses cups, ounces and pounds. Both use tsp and tbsp
- the ingredients appear in the order they are used in the second book
- the covers are different but all images and recipes inside the books are EXACTLY identical
- some ingredients are named differently : double cream for heavy cream, caster sugar for sugar, broad beans for fava beans, etc.
- the quantities in the second book are rounded : 400g asparagus is 1 lb
I bought the second book by mistake and I prefer the first one for the metric units.

What a wonderful book !

Wow! Thank you so much for clarifying this. I too saw both books (at the same price) and wondered what was up.. This is very helpful.

Thanks for the clarification! I am now unsure which one to buy, as I am from Australia and relocated to the US. But I appreciate the information! Decisions, decisions!
As an aside, Australian/NZ tablespoon measures (and perhaps also UK tablespoon measurements) are equivalent to 20 grams, whereas US tablespoon measurements are just 15 grams. I have both in my kitchen, as I have many recipe books from both countries. All other spoon measures are the same - go figure!
I wanted to add to your comments on the ingredient names. Caster sugar (as it is known in Australia, New Zealand and the UK) is fine sugar or bakers sugar here in the US. For most recipes (apart from baking) that might not matter too much but I thought I would add my 2 cents (or pennies or pence) in :)
