A very special guest for the River Cottage Food Fair 2019... Yotam Ottolenghi.
Ottolenghi is an acclaimed chef, restaurant owner, and food writer. He has published seven cookbooks including Ottolenghi, Plenty, and Jerusalem and his latest book Simple. He writes a weekly column for The Guardian’s Feast Magazine and a monthly column in The New York Times. Yotam has also made two Mediterranean Feasts series for More 4, along with a BBC 4 documentary Jerusalem on a Plate.
Yotam Ottolenghi will be giving a demo on stage on the Saturday, so visitors to River Cottage HQ will be able to see him in action and learn more about his food philosophy.
Yotam will be joining all the River Cottage regulars. Hugh will be speaking and signing books, and Steven Lamb, Gill Meller and John Wright will all be taking part. More special guests to be announced soon.
