La Mañueta, emblematic 'churros' bakery


This is a short and funny documentary piece about the labour of the Fernández-Elizalde family at their churros 'bakery' in Pamplona, a 140 year-old store.

'Churros' are a long thin cylinder of dough, deep-fried in olive oil and often dusted with sugar. Usually eaten with hot chocolate for breakfast.

The 'churros' made for breakfast during the San Fermin festival by the hands of Paulina Fernández (a 88 year old lady, grand-daughter of the original founder of the business) and her six children, grand-children and great grand-children are an institution in the city.



This video made with a hundreds of shots, taken during the morning of the 10th of July 2010, tries to show a bit of her work.
