We are delighted to announce the superb Melissa Leong, food writer and acclaimed host of Australian Masterchef, as host and MC of Flavour of Life, in conversation with Yotam Ottolenghi at the Adelaide Convention Centre this June.

He’s the trail-blazing chef, prolific author, TV personality and restauranteur whose name has become a cooking style. Yotam Ottolenghi is touring Australia and New Zealand in 2021 to reveal his next-level approach to cooking explored in his stunning new book Ottolenghi FLAVOUR. Don’t miss the exclusive opportunity to hear directly from the man himself about the taste sensations and ingredients that excite him and will inspire your own cooking.

Written with long-standing collaborator and co-writer Ixta Belfrage, FLAVOUR celebrates the limitless potential of vegetables and shows how to transform them into magical dishes.

Yotam Ottolenghi Flavour of Life is all about sharing and caring. The internationally-acclaimed chef and writer talks about his influences and experiences, and offers insights about being a restauranteur and how you can dial up the flavour and be a sure-fire hit at mealtimes.

Ottolenghi’s passion, warm presence and inclusive voice has attracted devotees worldwide. He is the chef-patron of famed London restaurants NOPI and ROVI, and of four Ottolenghi delis. Best-selling cookbooks include Plenty (2010), Jerusalem (2012) and Ottolenghi SIMPLE, which won the National Book Award in 2018 and was selected as best book of the year by The New York Times.

The upcoming tour further demonstrates “the Ottolenghi effect” – the creation of meals full of colour, flavour, bounty and sunshine – as he turns his attention to innovative yet near-effortless vegetable dishes, home cooking during the Covid pandemic and leadership in hospitality.

Renowned for his modern take on Eastern Mediterranean cuisine, the inspired masterchef brings the region’s exotic flavours to the forefront of home cooking in a relaxed, open and informative style.

There’ll be plenty of food for thought on the menu, not to mention a few spicy secrets behind such exotic hits as Aubergine Dumplings alla Parmigiana, Miso Butter Onions and Hasselback Beetroot with Lime Leaf Butter.

Ottolenghi will bring Flavours of Life to the Adelaide Convention Centre for one night only on Wednesday, 9 June, 2021. Tickets are on sale to the public through Ticketek Australia. For further information and tickets, click here.
