Together with her sisters, Helen 'waited' on the table at her parent's numerous dinner parties, and spent her hours after school picking the 'tails' off beansprouts at her mother's Chinese restaurant. When at university studying psychology, she worked at a French bakery on the weekends, and eventually found herself as head pastry chef at one of Melbourne's landmark restaurants. In 2006 Helen moved to London. Two weeks after arriving, having been recommended to look at Ottolenghi as a place to work, she went to meet Yotam. The two of them have been eating, baking, discussing and dissecting the sweeter things in life ever since. Helen has her fingers in lots of pies: as well as being Ottolenghi's product developer, she is also a chartered psychologist and mother to two young boys. She lives in West London with her husband David and their children.
