Biography Hosean Alia.
Josean Martinez Alija - Chef and apologist of minimalism.
Name Josean Martinez Alija associate experts in the culinary arts, primarily with the elite institutions of public Power «Restaurante Guggenheim» in the Spanish city of Bilbao.
It is located in a unique place: the Guggenheim Museum, whose building was designed by prominent architect Frank Owen Gehry, which later became the hallmark of this gifted architect. Outside the restaurant, in the halls of the museum are decorated with paintings of contemporary Spanish artists such as Richard Serra, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol. And inside it creates an artist from cooking, chef Josean Martinez Alija.
Remarkable interior of the restaurant: the elements of luxury can be attributed only tablecloths on the tables - they are heavy, rich fabric willy-nilly, reminiscent of the great past of Spain. Initially, except tablecloths on the tables there is nothing: no cutlery, bread bins, the more flowers or candles. All in the spirit of minimalism! The real art visitor will find food, seeming at first glance, is also very economical: no garnish and sauces. But, on the other hand, the reason for admiration handiwork of master Hoseana is how food is in harmony with the dishes in which it is served, and, of course, its taste.
Luxury in simplicity.
Mr. Aly boils down their meals to their most essential components. He compares this process to the letter of the Japanese haiku (as a single column of Japanese characters), in which no syllable, not even half a syllable can not be wasted. But property haiku - simplicity - is not unique to the method of cooking, but only a clear and concise implementation of ideas maestro on a plate.
Like the famous chefs in the United States, Hosean seeks to recall the memories of visitors a familiar food. But not in the performance of their grandmothers. He goes further, including in their dishes modest components inherent in kitchens predecessors, changing the structure of the ingredients, their flavors and aromas.
For example, tomatoes in his dish «Tomatoes Filled with Aromatic Herbs and Caper Broth» (Tomatoes filled with aromatic herbs and "laughing" broth) at first glance seem innocent horticultural variety of plant foods. But this impression is deceptive: having tried them, the visitor will feel in the mouth effect of a bomb from a mixture of flavors and aromas of rosemary, mint, chives and lemongrass. Technology of preparation of this dish is not simple: to bring into each tomato herbal filler Hosean uses a hypodermic syringe. After that, he "dresses" for each vegetable "shirt" made of green pepper or sprinkle with a gloss pepper Morron.
According to Josean Martinez Alija, surprise visitors something familiar difficult. That is why he considers the technique of cooking, as a challenge to the daily routine. On the other hand, the simplicity brings us closer to understanding the essence of life is based on the Earth and its bounty.
