In this episode, Annick van Rinsum speaks with world renowned chef and author Sami Tamimi. They talk about the Palestinian household he grew up in, where food was always at the center of conversations, but where the cooking was left to the women. This did not stop him to pursue a career as a chef. He gained experience with different cuisines and soon made it to head chef. In 1997 he moved to London where he met Yotam Ottolenghi – it was the start of an extensive cooperation. Together with Tara Wigley, he wrote the cookbook Falestine – an ode to the kitchen he grew up with. Tamimi continues to divide his time feeding people his delicious food, working for charities and he is writing another cookbook.
