Our Philosophy

While much has changed since we opened shop in 2002 – the Ottolenghi team has expanded, new sites have appeared along with a thriving restaurant and on-line store, exciting new ingredients fill our cupboards, even bigger platters hold even taller displays of food – so much, crucially, has remained the same. Staff members who’ve been together for years, recipes, dishes and ingredients that are old and trusted favourites and a philosophy at the heart of all we do that is as true today as it ever was.

Simply put, we are very serious about making people happy through our food. We are still cooking the food that we and our customers delight in and it’s still making us proud, happy and full of beans.
