If there was one piece of art you could feature in, which would it be and why?
It would be 'Hotel Room', by Edward Hopper. All of Edward Hopper’s paintings have a realistic and nostalgic feel that I love. They reflect American Society in the 30s. His works are thought-provoking and make me feel like I am travelling in time.
Who inspires you and why? An artist, a family member, someone current or historical?
I am lucky to be surrounded by inspiring chefs from all over the world. They are all different, and are gifted with a lot of emotion and sensitivity. Through their work and passion, they share pieces of art and culture and make me feel human and alive.
What are your cultural aspirations? What do you still want to see, do and achieve?
My project is to develop the Foodalist all around asia, and build bridges between European and Asian gastronomy.
What are your favourite cultural cities in the world and why?
New York, for its mixed culture and energy. I love going there, even if it's only for a couple of days, just to feel the NYC vibe.
Paris, for its wonderful history, museums, and culture.
I also love Tokyo - I am obsessed with Japanese culture and food.
What are you up to at the moment and where can we find it?
My food blog is where I share my pictures about all my favourite places to dine and sleep around the world www.thefoodalist.com.
I am also currently organising exclusive food events in Europe and Asia via the chefs agency I mentioned earlier.
