La razón de ello es que el famoso chef vasco, responsable del restaurante Le Chateaubriand de Paris, que está en la novena posición de la lista 2011 del  S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants  tiene un vinculó con Israel. Este chef, del que ya hemos hablado en varias ocasiones en nuestra web, empezó por casualidad a trabajar en un restaurante, de lavaplatos, e la ciudad israelí de Tel  Aviv a finales de los años ’90 del pasado siglo.

El diario Haaretz, lo recuerda y lo usa como excusa, para realizarle una amplia entrevista en su restaurante de París. Una interesante entrevista, en la que queda bien claro de donde es: del pueblo que baila (y cocina) en los Pirineos.

It’s afternoon and Le Chateaubriand is empty except for a few workers. Inaki Aizpitarte, wearing jeans and a chef’s shirt, is giving orders, planning and organizing what will be served that evening. This famous chef, who presides over an acclaimed and sought-after restaurant, actually started his career in Tel Aviv, in the late ’90s. “I flew to Tel Aviv and I didn’t have any money,” he says. “I planned to work and save money and keep traveling, but I didn’t find work in my field, which was gardening. I started working as a dishwasher, and when I finally found a gardening job, the restaurant owner offered me another job in the kitchen – I stayed there for six months, I learned to cut vegetables, I acquired the basic techniques; it was very creative.”
