Author Biography

Ottolenghi’s culinary career began as a pastry chef in London, during which time he met Arab-Palestinian chef Sami Tamimi. In 2002, the duo founded the first Ottolenghi delicatessen in Notting Hill; the place became instantly popular, and in the years that followed, Ottolenghi opened a further two delis and three restaurants in London.

In 2006, Ottolenghi started a weekly food column The New Vegetarian in the Guardian, and his first cookbook Ottolenghi was published two years later. It was followed by another six bestsellers: Plenty (2010), Plenty More (2014), Jerusalem (2012), Nopi (2015), the dessert cookbook Sweet (2017) and Ottolenghi Simple (2018). His latest book Ottolenghi Flavour is published in September 2020.


‘Fabulous book.’ – Good Housekeeping

‘Simple food in a way that is undeniably Ottolenghi – in other words beautiful and delicious.’ – Evening Standard

‘Simple, proves that taking a less complicated approach to cooking needn’t mean losing out on flavour. Try these new recipes for an easier route to mealtime nirvana.’ – Delicious magazine

‘[Yotam Ottolenghi’s] latest title, Ottolenghi Simple is a thrill. I particularly adored the pasta with pecorino and pistachios, lamb with almonds and orange blossom, and baked rice with tomato confit and garlic. Many of the recipes have fewer than 10 ingredients and can be made in under 30 minutes. While a lot of cookbooks meet these criteria, few have Mr. Ottolenghi’s far-ranging flair.’ – Melissa Clark, New York Times

‘Fantastic. Scintillating flavours… dishes you can cook with ease.’ – Diana Henry, Sunday Telegraph
