) tricks for the perfect paella: use fresh ingredients, take your time, give it a lot of love and triple sauté the tomatoes. “When I’m cooking, I feel as if my body were just another ingredient in the recipe,” says the former waiter-turned-professional chef, who is based in Valencia. “I let go and improvise with different ingredients and steps. In general, I just feel happy.” Today, David leads cooking workshops where foodies can learn new recipes and disconnect from their daily routine in the kitchen.
