The Basque country is renowned for its cuisine, so it’s no coincidence that San Sebastian has the highest concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants anywhere in the world! Visit the local market, and you’ll see the city’s top chefs doing their own shopping for the day…fish, beans, beef, chestnuts, honey and almonds…you name it, San Sebastian has it! Basque cuisine is an important part of the Basque cultural identity, and traditional recipes are kept alive in kitchens right across the region. Whilst you’re there, don’t forget to try pintxos, the delicious Basque equivalent of tapas!
The Spanish & Cookery Course runs throughout July and August, and focuses on a different aspect of Basque or international cookery every week, from tapas to miniature cooking – please contact us for more information. After your cookery class, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the food you’ve prepared with a glass of good Spanish wine! Please note that this course should be taken in conjunction with an Intensive Spanish Course. A recipe book is included in the cost of your course.
