Virtual Cooking Demo with Chef Yotam Ottolenghi

Chef Yotam Ottolenghi (best known for his cookbook Jerusalem) will join Chicago Humanities Festival for a free exclusive virtual cooking demo of his famous One-Pan Orecchiette Puttanesca and a conversation about the key elements of preparing wonderful food (process, pairing, produce) and his revolutionary approach to flavor. Ottolenghi will be joined at CHF by program host, pastry chef Claire Saffitz.

Chef Ottolenghi is a major inspiration for our quarantine cooking. Ottolenghi Flavor, his latest cookbook of 100+ plant-based recipes (that also pair great with meat) has us upping our vegetable game for every meal with inventive, delicious, and easy-to-make home cooked dishes. 

The virtual event will take place on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 from 7:00 – 8:00 PM Central Time. Your support makes this FREE program possible and accessible – please donate now to help sustain these conversations and connections.

This program is presented in partnership with The Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University. This program is generously underwritten by Paula R. Kahn.

The Chicago Humanities Festival is also pleased to partner with the Seminary Co-op Bookstores, a not-for-profit bookstore whose mission is bookselling. When you purchase your copy of Ottolenghi Flavor from Seminary Co-op you are directly supporting independent bookselling in Chicago and a vital space for book browsing, discovery, and community.
