Yotam Ottolenghi is a culinary star, known for inventive, bold recipes. He oversees five restaurants in London, writes for The Guardian and frequently pops up on the BBC. Chef Ottolenghi grew up in Jewish West Jerusalem. His business partner and co-chef Sami Tamimi was raised in the Muslim neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. Meeting as adults in London, they combined culinary forces and created the famously familiar, and highly innovative Ottolenghi brand of cuisine: fresh ingredients, full-bodied Mediterranean flavors, all served up with European flair. Authors of The New York Times Bestseller Jerusalem, they have been featured in The New York Times, Saveur and the Los Angeles Times.
