It’s a cloudy morning in the city of San Sebastián, and massive waves batter the promenade on the Bay of Biscay. Underground, sheltered from the gray, Elena Arzak makes her way through La Bretxa market, past Basque fishmongers weighing silver-striped elvers, around locals in wool hats sipping the day’s first glasses of txakoli. At 44, Arzak is an extraordinary chef at the top of her game. She is one of just six women in the world with three Michelin stars to her restaurant’s name — Arzak, which she runs jointly with her father, Juan Mari Arzak. In 2012, she was named World’s Best Female Chef at the annual World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards — the ranking machine that helped turn chefs like René Redzepi and Ferran Adrià into superstars. Yesterday, when this year’s 50 Best were announced, she was one of two women to make the list, and the only woman in the top 10.
