ONE of Spain’s top chefs has revealed the inspiration behind his cooking.

Head chef at two-Michelin-starred Mugaritz restaurant Andoni Luis Aduriz claims his flair comes not from cookbooks but science and theatre.

In fact the 45-year-old Basque chef revealed he imagines serving up banquets to the characters in William Shakespeare’s tragic play Titus Andronicus when attempting to come up with new dishes.

He said: “Working with creative people makes you more creative. It is always stimulating and exciting to share ideas and knowledge with creative people from other disciplines. Mugaritz wouldn’t be what it is today without these connections.”

Mugaritz is ranked No. 7 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list by Restaurant Magazine.
