In this video below the Italian chef Massimo Bottura, who was recently ranked 3rd in The World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, is joined by chef Daniel Patterson to discuss creativity, inspiration in the kitchen and their work with Cook it Raw.
In an interview with Bloomberg news in London the duo discuss their approach in the kitchen with Bottura saying that's it's his extra activity away from the station that allows him to bring so much creativity into his dishes.
Both chefs speak highly of events like Cook It Raw which each year brings chefs and local producers together in interesting locations around the world.
It's relationships formed on trips like these that Patterson says help to form important bonds with fellow chefs.
