Chef Rob Curley of Slemish Market Supper Club will be competing against 21 of the best Patatas Bravas chefs in the city of Palencia in the Castile Y Leon Region, Spain on Monday 26th September.
Patatas Bravas translates as “fierce potatoes” because of their spicy tomato sauce. It is one of the most popular tapas dishes in Spain. Rob’s entry is called Son’s of Tapa’s Patatas Bravas. It has Boxty potato Skulls and bones, a Son’s of Tapa’s spicy tomato Bravas mousse and turf-smoked Garlic Aioli. Just one other of the 22 finalists (a chef from Andorra) is from outside Spain. The winner will receive a work of art by the internationally renowned Palencian painter Antonio Guzman Capel, 750 euro in cash awarded by Vermut Yzaguirre, 1500 bottles of Fuentes de Lebanza water and a professional video-report for social networks valued at 500 euro, courtesy of the production company Oceangrain Audiovisual. The final will be live streamed on YouTube from 9 am to 5 pm.
