Yotam Ottolenghi: A life in flavour 

An exclusive opportunity to hear directly from Ottolenghi himself about his life in flavour, and find inspiration for your own cooking.
Is flavour at the heart of your cooking? Do you dream of taking your food to the next level? Then don’t miss this chance to hear from chef and cookery writer Yotam Ottolenghi as he discusses the tastes, ingredients, and flavours that excite him, and how he has created a career from cooking.
Sharing his experience as a chef, restaurateur and food writer, Ottolenghi will offer unique insights into how flavour is dialled up and why it works – from basic pairings that are fundamental to taste, to cooking methods that elevate ingredients to great heights. He will also discuss his life and career, from how his upbringing has influenced his food, to opening six delis and restaurants in London.
Don’t miss your chance to purchase a copy of Yotam Ottolenghi’s new book Ottolenghi Flavour with your ticket for £20 (RRP £26). Yotam will be signing copies after the event.
Yotam Ottolenghi is a cookery writer and chef-patron of the Ottolenghi delis, NOPI and ROVI restaurants. He writes a weekly column in The Guardian’s Feast Magazine, a monthly column in The New Yorker and has published seven bestselling cookbooks: Plenty and Plenty More (his collection of vegetarian recipes); Ottolenghi: The Cookbook and Jerusalem co-authored with Sami Tamimi; and NOPI: The Cookbook with Ramael Scully. Sweet, with Helen Goh, is his baking and desserts cookbook. His 2018 award-winning book is Ottolenghi Simple, with Tara Wigley and Esme Howarth.
