Global Nomads: Olia Hercules

Olia Hercules no entiende la cocina como un hábito. Para ella, cada plato acaba siendo una nueva experiencia. De origen ucraniano pero residente en Londres, Olia es una de las chefs más reconocidas en la red. Ha participado de forma activa en la creación de The Recipe Kit ­­–probando y escribiendo más de 400 recetas- , trabajando como freelance para revistas como Sainsbury’s & Jamie’s y apareciendo en el show Red, Hot and Hummy. ¿La clave de su trabajo? La visualización. El trabajo de Olia como estilista de comida queda presente en su cuenta de Instagram, retratando cada plato lleno de colores y texturas. Hablamos con ella para conocer la vida de una chef que recorre el mundo con sus recetas bajo el brazo.

Mi color favorito es… El verde Me gusta el sabor de… Un pepino recién cosechado bajo el cálido sol Me siento como en casa… Con las personas agradables y hospitalitarias Nunca viajo sin… Mi libreta de recetas Me gusta el olor a… Ozono (durante las fuertes lluvias de verano).

Lo mejor de estar en movimiento es… Poder observar lo inesperado Mi descubrimiento más preciado es… Las anotaciones de recetas de mi madre cuando iba a la universidad Soy chef porque… Quería disfrutar cada día en mi trabajo El plato más sorprendente que he degustado ha sido… Spaghetti ai ricci cerca del mercado Vucciria en Palermo Buena comida significa para mi… Buenos ingredientes y cocinar con amor Un buen consejo cuando estás en la cocina… Limpiar, limpiar, limpiar. Después de cada tarea, ordenar. Cocinar así será más fácil y más agradable.

Mi comida favorita es… No puedo vivir sin pan Siempre bailo cuando escucho… Canciones de los años 50 con mi hijo por las mañanas en la cocina Envejecer significa para mí… Ralentizar el ritmo de vida y disfrutarlo por completo El próximo restaurante que quiero visitar es… The Flying Pig en Italia, pero desafortunadamente ya no está Un buen consejo para hacer las maletas… Llevar solo lo necesario Un sueño… San Francisco y Karabakh en Azerbaiyán Me ayuda a ser creativa… Mi patrimonio.

El amor es… La máxima expresión de altruismo Lo mejor de vivir en Londres ahora es… Su cosmopolitismo Mi lugar favorito para estar solo es… Mi cocina Una ciudad que me ha sorprendido recientemente… Budapest La última locura que he hecho es… Llevarme hojas de guindas y flores de eneldo de Ucrania a Londres para hacer escabeche Una fuente secreta de inspiración… Mi marido Ser una Global Nomad signica para mi… Observar la belleza en lugares insospechados. 

Olia Hercules does not understand the kitchen as a habit. Every dish is an experience. Of Ukrainian origin but based in London, Olia is one of the most famous cooks in the Internet. She has participated actively in the creation of The Recipe Kit -preparing more than 400 recipes-. She has worked as a freelance for magazines such as Sainsbury & Jamie’s and has also appeared on the show Red, Hot and Hummy. Her key strategy? Visualization. Olia works as a food stylist as she claims on her Instagram, portraying every dish defined by colors and textures. We talked with her to have a glance into the life of a chef who travels the world with her recipes under her arm.

My favorite colors are…green I like the taste of… freshly-picked cucumber, warm from the sun I really feel at home… with lovely hospitable people I never travel without… my recipe notebook I like the smell of… ozone (during strong summer rains).

The best thing about being in movement is… being able to observe the unexpected My most appreciated finding is… my mum’s old recipe notes from when she was a university student I’m a chef because…I wanted to enjoy every single day at work The most stunning dish I have ever tasted… spaghetti ai ricci near the Vucciria market in Palermo Good food means to me… good ingredients and cooking with love Some good advice when you are in the kitchen… Clean, clean, clean. After each job – tidy up. Cooking will be so much easier and more enjoyable.

My favorite food is…I couldn’t live without bread I always dance when I listen…to 1950s tunes with my son in the mornings in my kitchen Getting old means for me… slowing down the tempo of life and thoroughly enjoying it The next restaurant I would like to visit is… The Flying Pig in Italy, but sadly it’s gone A good tip when I pack… pack lightly A dream… San Francisco and Karabakh in Azerbajan It helps me to be creative… my heritage.

Love is… the highest form of altruism The best of living in London right now… its cosmopolitanism My favorite place to be alone is… my kitchen A city that has surprised me lately is… Budapest The last crazy thing I have done… sneaked sour cherry leaves and dill blossom from Ukraine to London to make pickles A secret source of inspiration… my husband To be a Global Nomad means to me… spotting beauty in unexpected places.
