Yotam Ottolenghi has been hugely influential over the past few years. His cafes and restaurants remain as popular as ever, but his cookbooks, and in particular his innovative approach to vegetables, have made him a star.

Like most cooks, I own a copy of Plenty, his first vegetarian book, and I often go back to it for ideas. Not since the publication of wild garlic, gooseberries . . . and me from Cork's own Denis Cotter, have vegetables spent so much time in the spotlight. Well, finally Ottolenghi's follow up to Plenty is here. Published recently, it promises exactly what its title suggests, Plenty More! With 120 vegetable dishes, each one as impressive as the next, I'm enjoying my copy!

'Plenty More' is published by Ebury Press, €30.99.
