Episode 142: Tara Wigley: Cook, Author and in-house writer for Team Ottolenghi

My guest today is Tara Wigley.

Tara spent a decade working in publishing–before going to cookery school in Ireland, where she spent 3 months with her twin toddlers and her dog. She has developed, tested, and written recipes for Ottolenghi’s weekly column in the Guardian magazine and monthly New York Times columns and his cookbooks.

She is the co-author of the award-winning Falastin, in-house writer of Team Ottolenghi, Yotam’s co-author on eight of the biggest food books, including the million-seller, Ottolenghi Simple.. and mother of teen twins and a tween.

Her hilarious and often biting ditties on Instagram have won her a new audience who are more interested in her own voice; How to Butter Toast is a recipe book without recipes, a rhyming route through the how-tos of cooking, which is both reassuring and entertaining.
