Off The Counter: "Plenty"

We recently hosted a group of visiting East Coast buddies along with several of our new West Coast friends.  For the dinner we prepared dishes from the cookbook "Plenty" written by chef Yotam Ottolenghi.   This recipe book combines vegetables, grains, herbs and seeds in a way I never thought possible, at least not in my kitchen.  The evening was spent experiencing new culinary combinations as well as acquainting our old friends with our new ones.  Take a look at some of the dishes and snapshots from that warm California night:

Many thanks to BS for giving us the cookbook that provided the menu and to all who joined us that evening!
