Join Helen Goh, Ottolenghi chef, pastry virtuoso, and co-author of the best selling cookbook Sweet in a culinary conversation with Neil Perry that roams from the far East to the near in a night of unforgettable flavours and great conversation.
Helen was born in Malaysia and started her cooking career in Australia, where she had migrated with her family as a girl. After seven years as head pastry chef at landmark Melbourne restaurant Donovans she moved to London and joined Ottolenghi in 2006 and has worked closely with Yotam Ottolenghi as the lead product developer for the past decade. Helen draws widely on Asian, Western and Middle Eastern influences in her cooking - and of course, on her love of sweets, showcased in her international best seller, Sweet.
The evening will be the meeting of two chefs from different culinary backgrounds who share a global outlook and crisscross borders in their search for compelling and beautiful flavours.
"Helen Goh has been the sweet right hand of Yotam Ottolenghi for many years now, and her delicious recopies and desserts are an inspiration to all," says Perry.
Expect more ingredients from Asia in Helen's food than ever. "I want to be braver about incorporating Southeast Asian puddings and cakes into my repertoire," she told Martha Stewart magazine earlier this year. "It won't be traditional or authentic, but I'm ready to be bold."
