Monthly Featured Chef: Yotam Ottolenghi!


We try not to play favorites at IHCC, but there is no denying the popularity of the somewhat legendary Yotam Ottolenghi. Ottolenghi is an original, combining flavors and textures in ways no other chef before him has done. We love him not only for the unique taste sensations he put before us, but also for inspiring us to become more creative in the kitchen.

This week feel free to make and post any Yotam Ottolenghi recipe by Sunday, May 15th. If you've cooked along with us when we cooked with Ottolenghi, or have cooked with Ottolenghi before, feel free to share your favorite Yotam Ottolenghi recipes in your post. 

Please remember to leave a comment after linking your post so that we don't miss out on your dish!
