Massively popular UK chef and cookbook author Yotam Ottolenghi has signed a deal with British publisher Ebury for two additional books, reports the Bookseller. One will be a sequel to his 2010 best seller Plenty called Plenty More (which will focus on vegetables), and the other will center on his Middle Eastern/Asian brasserie Nopi in London and will be co-written by head chef Ramael Scully.
Plenty More will be out in the UK in the Fall of 2014; no word on when The Nopi Cookbook will be released or when either title will be out in the US. Meanwhile, Ottolenghi's self-titled first cookbook comes out in the US in early September from Ten Speed.
Ottolenghi's books are best sellers in the UK and the US, and according to the Bookseller, he's sold one million total copies of his first three books, Ottolenghi, Plenty, and Jerusalem. They are so popular, in fact, that the New York Times just did a trend piece on Jerusalem, placing it on the same lofty plane as previous cult cookbooks like Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and The Silver Palate Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins.
