"To say which is the best pintxo would be like trying to pick a favourite child, but if you need a helping hand deciphering the menus turn to a food tour company such as San Sebastián Food, who will take you on a three-hour pintxo crawl through some of the city’s most famous bars and most delicious morsels (should you be so inclined, they even have a new cookery school where you can learn how to make your own)."- Escapism Magazine

The best of the Basque Country, this package is the ultimate in culinary adventure. After settling into your luxurious room in the Hotel María Cristina, you will begin to get your hands on the famous fresh Basque produce in a three-day cooking course at our state-of-the-art cooking school. From Basque Cooking to Pintxo how-tos, our classes are unique, fun and informative...not to mention delicious.

By night, one of our expert guides will take you around San Sebastián's famous pintxo bars, feeding you stories of local tradition as well as the city's best pintxos (with wine pairings, of course).

As if that was not enough, the itinerary also includes a wine tasting evening with our somillier, Tito Lázaro, and concludes with an unforgettable luxe meal at one of San Sebastián's Michelin-starred restaurants, such as Arzak or Mugaritz.

"Superb! I was invited to an Underground Dinner by Marti (who is a wealth of knowledge), went Pinxto Hunting with Aranxta, who is lovely and did a wine tasting with Tito. They were all exceptional experiences and the people who work at San Sebastian Food Company are great!"

"My husband and I traveled to San Sebastian as a part of our 2 week road trip through Spain this past August. When asked what our favorite experience was of the trip, our response is always the San Sebastian Cooking Class! The hosts were wonderful. From our tour of the market and learning about local cuisine, to experiencing the class itself with Chef Christina, to celebrating our work over a meal with fellow travelers from all over the country, this was an experience not to be forgotten. We learned how to clean squid, break Txakoli, and craft pintxos. This isn't a class for beginning cooks which my husband and I appreciated. We will recommend this experience to everyone we know traveling to San Sebastian. Thank you so much to all of the staff there who made it such a great memory for us!"

"Food glorious food ... and nowhere more glorious than in San Seb. Try living off pinitxos for an evening .. one in each bar ... Don't stick to main meals as these are good but you only get to try one dish!"
