FOOD Georgianna Hiliadaki Executive chef and co-founder of The Modern Greek Food Group, whose flagship, The Funky Gourmet in Athens, has two Michelin stars funkygourmet.com Selects: Ferran Adrià, culinary pioneer “Without a doubt, Ferran Adrià is the father of modern gastronomy. His culinary genius has set him apart as one of the most influential chefs of all time, and the father of avantgarde cuisine. Ferran’s mission is to discover ‘the limits of the gastronomic experience’ and he has clearly achieved it. Working in his kitchen at the famous El Bulli in 2005 played an important role in my career and in the later formation of the culinary concept of avant-garde Greek cuisine. Ferran told me, ‘You have to be organised in order to be an anarchist’. This simple piece of advice has proved its wisdom many times throughout my culinary life. It’s hard to choose just one signature dish of his, but I’d say the Caviar with Hazelnuts in his 2011 closing menu was a particular highlight.” El Bulli will reopen in February 2020, as elBulli1846, a ‘laboratory and museum of culinary innovation’. elbullifoundation.com 14 / Jaguar Magazine
The Selectors CRAFT Grant Gibson Design, architecture and craft expert who hosts the critically acclaimed podcast Material Matters instagram: grant_on_design Selects: Morten Klitgaard, glass artist “With gentrification and rising property prices it is really diffcult to be an artist or maker in London. So companies like London Glassblowing, which this year marks a decade in its current gallerycum-studio in Southwark, are worth celebrating. Founded in 1976 by Peter Layton, a pioneer of the studio glass movement in the UK, the company has long been a hot house for new talent by providing facilities for resident artists. Picking one out is invidious but I’m a big fan of Morten Klitgaard’s work. The Danish artist experiments with removing the material’s transparency, creating a pocked, glaze-like appearance to his pieces. It’s fascinating stuff.” mortenklitgaard.com FASHION Tanja Martin IMAGES: ADAM GOLDBERG/A LIFE WORTH EATING; DORTE KROGH; A COLLECTED MAN Stylist for Pharrell, Cillian Murphy, Michael Fassbender, Colin Firth and Kit Harrington Selects: The Burberry Trench, reimagined by Riccardo Tisci “There’s one major trend in coats for this winter – the trench. And my pick has to be Burberry. The arrival of ex-Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci at Burberry may have secured its revival, but it is the functionality of this versatile coat which sustains the brand's popularity. He has reinvented their classic trench coat for Autumn/ Winter 2019 to oversized proportions, allowing the more relaxed fit to be worn with tailoring and off-duty staples alike. Originally developed for soldiers to wear in the trenches of the First World War, the functionality is still there – the Raglan sleeves, storm flaps, back yolk and cuff straps – but you’re now just as likely to see it teamed with a pair of Converse and a black midi T-shirt as you are a suit and pair of brogues.” burberry.com Jaguar Magazine / 15
