He has a rap song named after him
Cementing his status as one of the coolest chefs in the world, Ottolenghi was recently exposed to new audiences via British rapper Loyle Carner, who titled his 2018 single 'Ottolenghi'.
Carner, who was recently featured on the cover of the first edition of GQ Hype, has expressed his admiration for Ottolenghi many times over. His ultimate dedication to the British-Israeli chef references Ottolenghi’s cookbook, Jerusalem. “They ask about the Bible I was reading,” raps Carner. “Told them the title was misleading, labelled it Jerusalem but really it’s for cooking Middle Eastern.” Ottolenghi makes a brief cameo in the music video.
