Know more about Damian Kristof
Who would you love to have dinner with and where?
“The people that I love to break bread with and continue to do that is my family and if I could have all of my family in one room, that’s who I choose to have dinner, lunch or breakfast with my whole family, mom and dad, cousins because the family unit that’s going to help me live a long time forever because they are the people I love. “
“If I was to pick somebody’s brain, the person that I love the most in the food industry is Jamie Oliver. I think that he does an incredible job in spreading his message in spicing people, he feels the food, he plays with the food and he really get into it. And he’s not into he say, He doesn’t go into a short courses and nutrition to pretend and knows everything anything. He just speaks the truth and he’s a great chef. I really respect what Jamie’s been doing around the world. A gradient global movement towards eating better food. I’d like to sit with him and share meal with him. I think that would be both macaroni food and would be a symbol of different leaves, and we would might have some gluten free pasta that would have made some scratch, would might have some rice, a nice big fish that we might have cooked by ourselves in the river. I think it would be just something that’s really wholesome and fresh that we can actually fall apart with our fingers and sit there and eat as mates and have some great conversation about how amazing it is to eat real food that tastes so good.”
Last meal on the planet?
“Ice cream and chocolate. There’s no doubt that both of those foods taste fantastic. I eat healthy so much that I think if the last meal on the planet I knew all I was going to eat for the rest of my days, I think I want to have some ice cream and chocolate. I think that would be great.”
