The hotly-anticipated première of ‘Seve’, the Seve Ballesteros biopic at the Empire, Leicester Square was followed by an afterparty at Boisdale of Belgravia. Guests were treated to culinary delights crafted by Boisdale owner Ranald Macdonald and the Executive Head Chef Colin Wint, who developed a menu that reflected the taste of Ballesteros’ home country, including stone crab, empanadas, octopus and squid ceviche, and Serrano ham croquettes for the stars of the film and their guests. No party is complete without a good drink, which was in abundant supply — a glass of Tio Pepe sherry on arrival, while the cigar terrace was turned in to a homage to Rioja with guests enjoying Beronia Rioja Reserva 2008 provided by Gonzalez Byass on this warm summer’s evening. The film’s star José Luis Gutiérrez, who played the young Seve, and Maria Molins, enjoying music from the Gypsy Kings with the Carmen Ballesteros, Seve’s daughter were present at the party. José was particularly excited about starring in the film as he said he had always played extras in his school plays and now he was the star of Seve. Meanwhile Stephen Evans, producer of Seve, was enjoying a delicious glass of Vilarnau Cava with Ranald Macdonald.
