SHE comes from Basque cheffing royalty, but Elena Arzak has been championing Chinese cooking.
Elena, the daughter of award-winning San Sebastian chef Juan Mari Arzak, has revealed one of the first books her father gave her was The Heritage of Chinese Cooking.
And in 2010, she participated in the Shanghai World Expo with chefs from 217 countries, making melon bread with ham, anchovies with strawberries and chocolate burger on Spain Day.
“It’s a very ancient cuisine, also what I liked about the Chinese cuisine is that they eat everything, from rooster combs to the legs,” she said.
