Meet chef and author Ixta Belfrage, the latest woman to join our Otiumberg Family.

An exciting new energetic presence on the London food scene, Ixta is winning over the industry on her own terms with her take on fusion flavours.

Ixta taught herself to cook, absorbing influences from her family's Italian, Brazilian and Mexican heritage. She started out running her own catering company before moving to Ottolenghi's NOPI restaurant and Test Kitchen, and co-wrote the bestselling 'Ottolenghi Flavour'.

Our founders Rosanna and Christie joined Ixta at her colourful East London home to discuss her influences, passions and first solo cookbook ‘MEZCLA: Recipes to Excite’. A morning well spent with a woman we highly admire.

We love to see how Ixta wears our pieces to fit her personal style; combining our gold vermeil pieces to complement her minimal look.
