In mid-June 2019, Sevilla were paralyzed by a massive connection: that of Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio. The footballer and the presenter were married in Seville Cathedral in front of almost 500 guests, including singers, bullfighters, TV faces and many footballers. Among the most awaited were David and Victoria Beckham, who after the religious celebration also attended the party and subsequent dinner at the La Alegría estate, owned by Sergio Ramos in the Sevillian town of Bollullos de la Mitación and for which Dani García was preparing one full menu for everyone.
It was now, three years later and during a visit to the Antena 3 program the anthill, as the chef explained what it was like making this dinner, revealing a few details that caught his attention and how picky some guests were. In particular, the Malaga chef said that there were two people who were picky about the menu he designed: the host of the same show, Pablo Motos, and British designer Victoria Beckham.
García wanted to make it clear that he was “thrilled” with the layout of the dinner and the way everything was handled. “It was amazing. I don’t say a wedding anymore. I don’t think I’ll ever do an event on such a highly personalized level in my life,” he affirmed. However, he also acknowledged that it was all “one brown”: “It was a brutal effort on a creative level.” That’s why the change the former Spice Girl wanted to make to practically everything was shocking. “It was very strange, it changed the whole menu,” he recalled. “It does Sorry to you, because when you prepare a menu, not only we, but the newlyweds, the whole team strive to create a unique menu …”. But, apparently, the designer’s was “completely different”. “Only based on vegetables and stuff,” he said. “I was very curious, I always had coconut water, all the time, and a bowl of mints. I really haven’t seen it in my life,” he said, surprised. In addition, he said that he was on the other side d it had Tisches hydroalcoholic gel, at a time before the Covid-19 pandemic when the gesture of frequent use was not common. “It was complicated to give him the menu,” he recalls.
This isn’t the first time someone has knowingly spoken out about the British creator’s dietary restrictions. Last September during an interview for the podcast River cafe table 4She described herself as a “nightmare” as a diner at restaurants, as she doesn’t eat meat, dairy, oil, sauces or butter. On the same show, her husband David humorously explained that he’s “unfortunately” married to “someone who’s eaten the same thing for the past 25 years.” He said that Victoria always eats the same thing: grilled fish and steamed vegetables, and that he almost never “deviates from it,” which, for the food lover that he is, doesn’t come easily to him. “The only time I’ve probably shared something that was on my plate was when I was pregnant with Harper, and it was the most amazing thing. It was one of my favorite evenings. I don’t remember what it was, but I do know he hasn’t eaten it since.”
On the other hand, during the conversation the anthill, Dani García also attacked Motos subtly and laughed in between. “To work a hamburger Wagyu with my sauce, it’s the best we have, it’s brutal, he says: ‘well no, i want the sauce separately, the garnish’. Like a little boy,” laughs the chef. “I didn’t give you that much for a sack either, did I? In the end what have I done? Remove ingredients?” Motos asked. “It’s difficult,” said the chef. “We try to make everyone happy,” to which the presenter assured: “You made me happy”.
