faithtable were thrilled to visit one of famous Celebrity Chef (and regular on BBC 1 Saturday Kitchen), José Pizarro’s, restaurants in Central London this week! José invited us to observe him creating a Passover-friendly (yes, you heard it here first!) Spanish Omelette (or ‘Potato Tortilla’) from scratch using a small selection of simple ingredients (and most importantly, NO GRAIN!).

This Spanish Omelette was exclusively made for faithtable and its followers in the run-up to Passover, the recipe and videos can be found here.

About José Pizarro:

Originally from Cáceres, José, has now lived in London since 2000 and is often described as the Godfather of Spanish cooking in the UK. He has worked at some of London’s most prestigious Spanish restaurants including Eyre Brothers, Brindisa and Gaudi. In 2011, Londoners were delighted when José opened his first solo venture, José Tapas Bar on Bermondsey Street, and has since gone on to open two further restaurants in the Capital: Pizarro, just a few yards from José Tapas, and José Pizarro at Broadgate Circle.

Aside from being a regular on BBC 1’s Saturday Kitchen, José has also appeared on Sunday Brunch, Weekend Kitchen with Waitrose, Rick Stein’s Christmas and The Food Network’s, The Big Eat. Most recently he was part of the debut series of The Wine Show, where he championed two of his favourite things, sherry & clams!
