About Ixta Belfrage
Ixta’s unique style of cooking is unapologetically fusion and draws inspiration from three main countries; Brazil (where her mother is from), Italy (where she spent her formative childhood years) and Mexico (where some of her family lived). She cut her teeth at NOPI restaurant before working at the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen for 5 years. In 2020 she co-authored the New York Times bestselling FLAVOUR with Yotam Ottolenghi and in 2021 she was named one of the most influential women in food by Code Hospitality.
