Yotam Ottolenghi is a seven-time New York Times bestselling cookbook author who also contributes to the New York Times Food section and has a weekly column in The Guardian. He lives in London, where he co-owns an eponymous group of restaurants, the fine-dining restaurant NOPI, and the vegetable-focused restaurant ROVI.
Helen Goh was born in Malaysia but began her cooking career in Australia, where she immigrated with her family as a girl. After seven years as head pastry chef at Donovans, a landmark Melbourne restaurant, she moved to London and joined Ottolenghi. She has worked closely with Yotam as the lead product developer for the past ten years. Helen draws widely on Asian, Western, and Middle Eastern influences in her cooking - and, of course, on her love of sweets.
