Fatima Ali (†29): Familie ehrt verstorbene TV-Köchin mit rührender Geste

Verschiedenste Geschmäcker und Zutaten, deren Zubereitung und Gerichte aller Art  – das war die Welt von Fatima Ali (†29). Die US-Amerikanerin mit pakistanischen Wurzeln wurde durch die TV-Show „Top Chef“ bekannt, im Januar dieses Jahres erlag sie einer Krebserkrankung. Zwischenzeitlich hatte sie als krebsfrei gegolten, doch im Oktober 2018 kam die tückische Krankheit zurück, kostete sie letztlich das Leben. Ein Schock für ihre Fans, aber vor allem die Familie der 29-Jährigen leidet bis heute unter dem tragischen Verlust. Mit einer rührenden Hommage ehren sie jetzt ihre verstorbene Fatima.

Familie verwirklicht Fatima Alis Traum

Was für die einen eine Bucket List ist, war für Fatima Ali der Traum davon, durch die Welt zu reisen und sie kulinarisch zu entdecken. Auf ihrem Plan: Michelin-Sterne-Restaurants auf der ganzen Welt. Doch verwirklichen konnte Fatima ihren Traum aufgrund ihrer schweren Erkrankung nicht. Die Köchin litt an einer selten Form von Knochenkrebs, woran sie letztlich auch starb. Um ihr Andenken auf ganz besondere Art und Weise zu ehren, unternimmt jetzt ihre Familie die Tour, die Fatima geplant hatte. Erster Stopp: Ein Drei-Sterne-Restaurant im italienischen Modena.

This was meant to be Fati’s first stop, a seat at Chef @massimobottura’s table. She talked passionately about wanting to see Italy, and of course, eat her way through it. We wrote a long list of all of the different food adventures she would have from each country she could get to – Denmark, Peru, France, her beloved Spain, and countless others. To remember Fatima and honour her is to remember to share love and joy with the world, and to soak up all of the incredible experiences you can, while you can 🌼 With her daughter in mind, her mom followed the breadcrumbs Fati left to a place where love and joy is abundant, #osteriafrancescana at @casamarialuigia. Where @massimobottura and his incredible wife @laratgilmore made time to meet and host our mom to give her and some of her dearest friends the experience Fati was so eager to have and share with all of us. The evening will never be forgotten by any who were there, Lara and Chef Massimo both paid special tribute to our Chef Fati, who was no doubt gleefully watching over her mom as she tried to decipher all five of the ages of parmigiano reggiano. 💫 It was a precious opportunity, to go on a journey Fatima was looking forward to against the intensely challenging odds she was facing, and in some way represent and share a part of her with Chef Massimo. He talked about how deeply moved he was by her story, her writing, and the gesture he could see our mother making. We can be very proud today, of Fatima, and how she continues to inspire people, and of her heartbroken mother who is honouring her daughter’s memory the best way she can – by making an effort to ‘indulge in the experiences of living’. 💓 A huge thank you to the entire team at @casamarialuigia, to the master curator Lara, and to the brilliant @massimobottura for helping us make such a special thing happen. The entire experience was truly food for the soul, connecting two beautiful memories in a place which was made to honour and pay tribute to the love for a mother, and a journey taken there for the love of a daughter 💖💕 #cheffati #fatimaali #cheffatima

Reise in Fatimas Gedenken

Nach dem Italien-Aufenthalt geht es für die Familie weiter durch die Welt – in Fatimas Gedenken. Auf dem Reiseplan stehen die unterschiedlichsten Ziele: „Wir haben eine lange Liste der unterschiedlichen kulinarischen Abenteuer geschrieben, die sie in jedem Land erleben wollte – Dänemark, Peru, Frankreich, ihr geliebtes Spanien und unzählige andere.“ Auch mahnt die Familie, das Leben in vollen Zügen zu genießen, schließlich kann es schneller vorbei sein als einem lieb ist. „Sich an Fatima zu erinnern und sie zu ehren bedeutet, sich daran zu erinnern, Liebe und Freude mit der Welt zu teilen und all die unglaublichen Erfahrungen aufzunehmen, die man machen kann, solange man kann“, schreiben die Familienangehörigen der verstorbenen Köchin in der Bildunterschrift.
