A spokesperson for the tour said: “Is flavour at the heart of your cooking? Do you dream of taking your food to the next level? Then don’t miss this chance to hear from chef and cookery writer Yotam Ottolenghi as he discusses the tastes, ingredients, and flavours that excite him, and how he has created a career from cooking.”

Sharing his experience as a chef, restauranteur and food writer, Ottolenghi 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 discuss his life and career, from how his upbringing has influenced his food, to opening six delis and restaurants in London.

Ticket holders can buy his latest book ‘Flavour’ at a special price after the show and Yotam will be signing copies after the event.
