What you'll do

We will start with a brief introduction of myself and guests. I will then explain a little bit about how Pintxos and Basque food has got where it is today. Then i will show you all the ingredients that you will need to have. I will then start the process of cooking while telling you some stories about the importance of these food for me. I will then give time for guest to talk about their experience and what made them choose my experience.
After cooking, and once the food is ready we will all sit in front of the computer and enjoy and eat the food we have prepared. We will share opinions and and how it taste for others... We will have a little interaction and a small game while we taste the food we have just made.
After that we will say good bye.

I would like my guests to leave the experience with knowledge of my culture and my food and great appreciation of it and obviously a desire to come to my town to try it all in person.

I was born in San Sebastian. I have lived in other countries like Madagascar, Jordan and Kenya and traveled to many countries. When i travel, the first thing i do is head to the street food market and try all i can. I must have a strong stomach. I just enjoy so much trying different food from other countries! I am lucky enough to come from a city which is very famous round the world for its great food. I have taken foreigners around San Sebastian for food tours and it has always been so enjoyable. Eating pintxos and all the great food this city has to offer is an unforgettable experience.
I am sure you will love talking and listening about food and my connection with it, in my experience and you will learn how to make these beautiful croquettes. I look forward to share this wonderful time with you!!

It was so much fun to meet Maria online live from the pinxtos capital of the world: San Sebastian! I was already familiar with making Dutch croquettes but the way the traditional Basque croquettes are made is quite different. I learned some fun facts, new techniques and the croquettes are delicious.
