An exclusive opportunity to hear directly from Ottolenghi himself about his life in flavour, and find inspiration for your own cooking.

Yotam Ottolenghi will be coming to Nottingham Playhouse to discuss 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, Yotam 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 talk about his life in food: how his upbringing has influenced his food, the journey that led to his becoming a chef, opening six delis and restaurants in London, and writing seven bestselling cookbooks.

Don’t miss your chance to purchase a copy of Yotam Ottolenghi’s new book Ottolenghi Flavour with your ticket for £19 (RRP £27). Yotam will be signing copies after the event.
