The Chef

 

José Pizarro

José Pizarro grew up in Extremadura in central-western Spain, in the tiny village of Talaván. His family had been farmers for generations and he spent his childhood on his parent’s farm, helping his father produce vegetables, dairy products and different meats. Life in this small village centred on dinner, but despite his mother and grandmother being fantastic cooks, learning kitchen skills from them proved impossible: ‘I knew all about the flavours and the smells; I was always in touch with the food, but not with the cooking, because I wasn’t allowed in the kitchen! My mum used to say “you go away from here!”, so I had to help my dad instead.’
