Ottolenghi’s Mediterranean Feast
Yotam Ottolenghi embarks on a culinary journey through the sun-soaked Lavant, from the spice markets of Morocco and Tunisia to the exotic eateries of Israel and Istanbul.
Across four episodes he meets cutting edge chefs and local food heroes; experiences the remarkable repertoire of food on the street; and picks new and exciting flavours to blend with traditional and timeless classics.
Each episode features an array of mouth watering recipes inspiring viewers to bring a touch of the Mediterranean into their own kitchens.
But it’s not just a succession of stunning recipes; every one of Yotam’s dishes tells a story.
We decode history on a plate, and delve into the creative conflict between tradition and innovation that is at the heart of Mediterranean and near East food, both past and present.
Beyond a culinary odyssey this is a personal journey of discovery – a cultural, anthropological road trip from a part of the world that has captured Yotam’s imagination since childhood.
