An Evening with Yotam Ottolenghi

Yotam Ottolenghi joined Samira Ahmed for a special live podcast recording of our award-winning podcast series How I Found My Voice

Yotam Ottolenghi has done more than any other chef or food writer in recent times to change the way we cook and eat. In 2014 the American food magazine Bon Appétit wrote that he had ‘made the world love vegetables’ – although he himself is not a vegetarian. He joined Samira Ahmed for a special live podcast recording of our award-winning podcast series, How I Found My Voice, in which he shared the memories and passions that have made him one of the most celebrated chefs alive today.
