YOTAM OTTOLENGHI
THE DIET THAT IMPROVED MY LIFE

He is
the fashion chef in the United Kingdom, the man who changed my way of eating,
the Israeli Yotam Ottolengui is unique with his recipes, full of ingredients,
color, flavor and impossible combinations.

He uses
a lot of vegetables in his kitchen, but he is not a vegetarian, I like to cook
and eat healthier but I also want to get excited about food.

Its way of mixing spices and condiments, combining ingredients that normally do not combine naturally, makes it very special and tasty.

When are you the perfect son?

I am the perfect son in the moments I realise the many values that my parents passed on to me are truly valuable. It is through my life experience that those values keep existing and respond to ever changing times and ideologies; concepts, beliefs and ideologies are mutable, and because of living my life they transcend. So the times when I offer their knowledge though my life and in my words I feel like the perfect son...

When are you not the perfect son?

When you have abandoned all knowledge and all of your parents wisdom! To create your own story, to dig in dark areas of life, to even fall and look for ways to stand up alone again. To look in the mirror knowingly of your hideous mistakes without any regrets....but this is what is making me strong and creating trust in myself!

Dear Jose,

Thank you for the sample well received. The quality is amazing !  I would be happy to do a test if you can send us 6 units. We could receive them immediately so we have them in time for Men fashion shows in Paris...
I had the occasion to show your collection to Mr Lagerfeld yesterday but apparently he's exclusively wearing Popeline impériale ;-)
