Wordfest's Imagine On Air presents chefs Noor Murad and Yotam Ottolenghi to celebrate the Canadian launch of their highly anticipated new cookbook series, Ottolenghi Test Kitchen: Shelf Love. This exclusive one-hour event, hosted by chef Eden Grinshpan (Top Chef Canada) and recorded in the actual Ottolenghi test kitchen, will air at 7pm MT/9pm ET/6pm (the pre-show will begin at 6:50pm MT.)

We are thrilled to be partnering with Indigo Books.
