Private one day cooking classes are one of the best things to do in San Sebastian! Spend the day with an experienced Spanish chef who will introduce you to the delights of the local cuisine.
Situated in the Basque region in the north of Spain, San Sebastian is a foodie haven, overladen with Michelin stars and the famed home of the Pintxos – an inventive form of tapas. Basque cuisine dominates with loads of super fresh fish, rare wild ingredients and inventive sauces – the perfect base for a cooking class.
Your day will start with a guided visit of San Sebastian’s market with its extensive fish section and outdoor farm stands. You’ll learn about the intricacies of the different Iberian hams, taste a morsel of Basque cheese and pick up some ingredients for your class. You’ll then head back to roll up your sleeves for an exquisite multi-coursed meal of traditional regional dishes under the expert guidance of your chef. The class can be tailored to your interests, perhaps bacalao al pil-pil (salt cod in olive oil emulsion) or marmitako (potato and tuna stew) grabs your fancy?
This is a private cooking class tailored to your needs so pretty much anyone with an interest in food should be able to enjoy the day regardless of your expertise with a fish slice! If you are visiting San Sebastian, then this is one of the best things to do while you're there and is the perfect accompaniment to a short break.
