I don’t see this clear cut continuity. When you love what you do, the need for rest is relative. We don’t really switch off even when we’re on vacation. We like discovering dishes we don’t know, talking to chefs. In particular, I really like seeing the markets, the fruit and vegetables, the local products. In the world, every market is different – the colours, the voices of the street vendors – this has always fascinated me. If, however, you are referring to something else, to passions cultivated in your free time, well, I read books – about cooking! – and it relaxes me a lot to look after and cuddle my dogs.
