Yotam Ottolenghi’s journey to becoming one of the world’s most well-known and beloved cookbook authors started with a potato thrown on the fire for the holiday of Lag B’Omer.
That’s what we learn in the third of what Ottolenghi refers to as his vegetable trilogy, the newly-published “Flavor: A Cookbook.”
We lived on the 6th floor. Cecilia Chiang lived on the 11th, the penthouse. It was a 1960’s building that looked like it belonged in Miami Beach, not at the top of a hill in Pacific Heights across the street from Lafayette Park in San Francisco. But it made sense that Mrs. Chiang lived there since it was built. It must have been a swanky place in the ‘60s. After all, her restaurant, The Mandarin, was one of the most popular spots in the city from when she opened it in 1961 until it closed 30 years later.
