Chef Pirata

17 Jan

One more thing…been meaning to post this since the holidays. Real Sociedad made this video where they surprise a family by cooking for them. El Pirata and his teammates Claudio Bravo, Dani Estrada, David Zurutuza and Carlos Vela played chef for the day at San Telmo Bokado (we have to go there, mygypsyspirit). There’s also a Making Of… video.

I love a man who can cook and the thought of El Pirata whipping me up dinner is beyond appealing. He also had a contest where he invited 25 fans to dinner and a match. Unfortunately, this all went down while I was feeling particularly rough and I never got around to posting  about it. (Sorry).

Enjoy some Pirate-y kitchen hijinks!

    Will Pirata be there to cook me a seductive dinner? I’m in. I’m stupidly excited for this. But I told you that already…

    this cements my mental fantasy of him as my extra hip boyfriend who gives me an unreleased joy division on vinyl and recites neruda.

    San Telmo isn’t on the main strip of bars/restaurants but it’s quite easy to find. But before you go to San Se I’ll have to recommend you to my favorite little place, assuming you like mussels. By far the best I’ve ever had

      I LOVE mussels and would really appreciate any recommendations. The apartment we rented is right by the Cathedral so we’re very central. We’re booked in at Akelare for a meal because as a foodie, there was no way in hell I was going to San Sebastian without eating at a Michelin 3 star restaurant. So excited for the food and football!

        Which catedral? Buen Pastor? I used to rent an apartment really close to there. I have the directions to my favorite restaurant from there memorized 🙂 So from the Buen Pastor you can see straight to the other church (Basilica Santa María). Head that direction. You’ll be a few blocks away from the Santa María and you’ll see the green Pharmacy sign on the left and that’s where you want to turn left. On that block on the left is a place called La Mejillonera (the bar sign is blue). Order the Mellijones Tigres. They’re soooo good! Also, they have some of the best Patatas Bravas I’ve ever had (and I’ve had A LOT). Let’s just say that within my first two weeks on being in Donostia, some of the bartenders there knew where I was from and my profession.
