A must do when in San Sebastián
John_L, Aug 2023
Such a good tour and experience! I would gladly do it again. Great chefs, an educational tour of the market, and excellent pintxos...and that was the beginning. The cooking class was fun, and work. It really gives you an appreciation as to what goes into making pintxos. Learned how to devein shrimp quickly (after a few misfires) cook a bechamel sauce properly, and assemble pintxos. The chefs were super helpful and good humored. Getting to enjoy a meal of the fruits of our labor was awesome and we had a really nice group. The class kitchen was first class. The basque cheesecake was divine! Absolutely one of the best tours we've ever done!
