Influencing food memory

2 posts in this topic

Thank you very much for your time, Chef Adria.

You explore such innovative ideas with your food. I was wondering if there was a strong food memory from your childhood that has influenced your work, and if so, how.

Best regards,

Hilary

Hilary, to be honest, I don’t think so.

Having said that, the taste of childhood is the taste I’ve got now. Evolved, logically. I mean, the childhood indelibly shapes your perception of taste, it's not the same living it in Spain as in China.

I don’t think that haute cuisine and childhood food have a clear link. I think they’re too far from each other.
