Ixta Belfrage

Ixta’s style of cooking draws inspiration from three countries she grew up travelling to, eating in and obsessing over: Brazil (where her mum is from), Italy (where she lived as a child) and Mexico (where her granddad lived). Ixta worked at the Ottolenghi Test Kitchen for five years and is the co-author of Ottolenghi Flavour. In 2022, she published her first solo cookbook: Mezcla, which was nominated in the 'best debut cookbook' category in the Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards and 'best international cookbook' in the James Beard Foundation Awards. Ixta is a contributing editor at Elle and has written for The Guardian, Suitcase Magazine and Pit. In 2021 and 2022, Ixta was named ‘one of the most influential women in food’ by Code Hospitality.
