Ottolenghi's Mediterranean Island Feast
Not yet reviewed.
Yotam Ottolenghi has transformed how we cook, eat and view Mediterranean food. Growing up in Jerusalem at the crossroads of conflicting cultures he developed a passion and a creative restlessness that inspired him to innovate and challenge traditional cooking conventions. Now, on a journey that will take him from the sun soaked island of Corsica to the unrivalled beauty of Crete, Yotam travels to the jewels of the Mediterranean that have captured his imagination since childhood. And with cinematic camerawork and stunning food photography we go with him.
In this series, Yotam will explore how the islands of the Mediterranean that have been invaded and traded through East and West have absorbed and adapted the foods of the many civilizations, empires and nations that have crossed their shores – creating dishes that, although bearing testament to the history of the isles, are also extraordinarily local and unique.
He will begin his journey exploring the wild, rugged beauty of Sardinia and Corsica, before heading down towards the Balearics and the almond covered isle of Mallorca, then on towards the complex island of Crete. Across the series Yotam will meet cutting edge chefs and local food heroes; experience the remarkable repertoire of food on the islands; and pick new and exciting flavours to blend with traditional and timeless classics.
Beautifully photographed mouthwatering meals will be one of the benchmarks of the series. But this isn’t just a succession of stunning recipes; we decode history on a plate. As well as a cultural and culinary exploration, this is also a personal journey of inspiration for him, providing the impetus for new flavours in his own recipes.
