Have a full gastronomic experience in San Sebastian today, starting with breakfast, then going to the market to purchase produce for the lunch meal you will prepare later. Learn about the local goods from your passionate guide. Back at their home, you’ll first make a few pintxos and have those with some wine, then play some local handball, and finally feast on the delicious lunch you’ve prepared.
  • Enjoy a classic lunch menu and pintxos
  • Try several local wines throughout the day
  • After the meal, have some coffee and perhaps a local cigar
  • Come hungry, because you will be well fed today

Sample Menu


2 Classic pintxos and a portion of fried green peppers with jamon de bellota

I like to use local, fresh and seasonal produce. So in each season of the year the menu varies.


Cabbage with red beans and chillies and chorizo, black pudding and bacon

We put all the food on the table and everyone goes eating as they please. This is my favorite local food and the most classic of the Basque Country.


Curd with nuts and honey

The curd will be made with raw milk from local sheep and we will use honey and nuts also local and natural.

    San Sebastien amazing cooking experience.
    emalfonso, May 2022
    julen our chef was amazing. He took us around for breakfast and to the stores to shop for our ingredients. We made a pork and chirizo dish, and a variety of pinchos which were fabulous. We went outside for ice cream and pastries. he took us around san sebastien and we found a secret bar in the this high slope which was fun. He is a great chef and we drank lots of wine. Highly recommendable.

    A truly remarkable day

    What a fantastic day I had. Insightful, fun, authentic, informative, engaging. For me, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I left knowing more about so much more than food and that's what I wanted- and the food was spectacular. I made a new friend in the process. I can't overstate how fantastic and genuine this experience was. If you want to get under the skin of Donostia/San Seb, start here.
