When he’s not in his kitchen or writing, Omar can be found on popular television programmes including, Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, The One Show, This Morning, Masterchef, Saturday Cookbook, Paul Hollywood’s Pies & Puds and Nigel and Adam’s Farm Kitchen. He also cooks Spanish recipes for Jamie Oliver’s FoodTube and is hailed as being at the forefront of Spanish food in the UK.
Here, Omar talks about his roots and his love for food, family and celebrations as well as telling us what he keeps in his pantry!
How nostalgic (if at all) does it make you feel eating Spanish food at home?
How important is food in Spanish culture? Do you celebrate calendared Spanish/religious festivals with any particular kind of feasting?
What vegetarian dishes could you recommend when dining at a Spanish feast and/or restaurant?
What would be your 'must have' pantry items to replicate a Spanish kitchen?
