Biography

Date of birth: 14 December 1968

Yotam Ottolenghi was born in Jerusalem. At the age of 30 Yotam come to London in 1998 to study cookery at the Cordon Bleu. Prior to that, whilst still living in his native Israel, he was pursuing a career in completely different spheres - academia and journalism.

He started off as an assistant at the pastry department at The Capital restaurant in Knightsbridge (which left a few mental blemishes but was, supposedly, a spirit building experience), and then moved on to become a pastry chef at the Kensington Place group of restaurants, headed by Rowley Leigh.

His next stop was the famous Baker and Spice shop in Chelsea, where he eventually became the head pastry chef and gained some of his most valuable professional experience. In 2002, he teamed with Noam Bar, Sami Tamimi and Jim Webb to set up Ottolenghi. This was an instant success.

Yotam writes a hugely popular weekly column, The New Vegetarian in The Guardian's Saturday magazine.
