Since this company is already rated rated #1 in the category, I don't think it's necessary to write too much except to say it's obviously excellent. I joined the Essentials of Pintxo cooking class. The facility is superb, the staff/chefs are extremely friendly & helpful, this class is very conversational and a lot of fun. The class & staff doesn't feel like they're following a strict script; they genuinely enjoy what they do and truly want to show you a good time and how to cook their local dishes. Amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone!

"Sherry tasting with Andrew, visiting the farmers' market with Lourdes, cooking masterclass with Ismael and Eli providing the translation, pintxos hunting with Eli, coastal/countryside trip with Agu and last but by no means least, gourmet shopping with Nagore - all wonderful and so enjoyable! Anyone who appreciates anything to do with good food and wine will love the experiences that San Sebastián Food offers. My husband and I are planning a trip back for San Sebastián Food's "Michelin Star Secrets"! Basque cooking/food is certainly one of the best in the world. The team at San Sebastián Food are not only passionate about Spanish Basque but are really charming too."

"This is my second gastronomic experience with San Sebastian Foods - and the highlight of my year! My wife, teenage son and I were lucky enough secure places at another great San Sabastian Food (SSF) event. If anyone is wondering is SSF would be a good family vacation choice, I would highly recommend it. Our son had a great time and learned a lot about food, cooking and the Basque culture - things they don't teach you in school. This time things were cranked up a notch as our chef/tutor was the Master Chef winner Ash Mair. We are all foodies and what is great about SSF is that they offer a range of choices to fit various cooking proficiencies. This one was more advanced than the first one we did with SSF. Master Chef Ash could not have been better - the combination of his natural charm, his incredible techniques and his many helpful hints and tips (I used a few over Thanksgiving) made our time extraordinary. The tours and trips to farms and wineries gave us a chance to see the beautiful countryside and meet local providers of exquisite products. Agus is a wonderful guide, host and, now, friend. We ended our stay with another trip see another of our SSF friends, Nagore, at the SSF shop in the Hotel Maria Christina who helped us replenish our Spanish wine and rare culinary treats. Our adventure was complete. We are all looking forward to our next trip to San Sebastian and San Sebastian Food."
