Earlier this week, Chef Jodi attended an exciting food event sponsored by the San Diego Center of Jewish Culture.
Yotam Ottolenghi, the famous Israeli-British chef, restaurant owner and cookbook author, was in town for a book-signing at the Leichtag Commons in Encinitas. During the event, he was also interviewed by acclaimed food commentator Evan Kleiman, which Chef Jodi found to be engaging and riveting.
Ottolenghi has long been an inspiring figure for Chef Jodi, as she regularly draws inspiration for her Middle Eastern cooking flavors from him. Meeting him in-person was a real treat, and she will continue to incorporate his recipes into Lajollacooks4u’s team-building events and cooking classes.
