What you'll do
The only CHEF-LED PINTXO TOUR in San Sebastián, join me for a walking, eating & drinking experience you'll never forget! We'll visit 5 different bars for a glass & a pintxo (Basque tapa) at each one. It's a full meal, a great night out & exactly what the locals like to do. You'll BE A LOCAL with me! Along the route I'll show you the sites & tell you about the history & culture of the Basque Country, but my focus is definitely on FOOD & DRINK. There's no better way to learn why this is one of the world's most delicious culinary capitols. Oh, I'm also gonna email you a handful of recipes when we're done so you can take the magic home. My route & the menu changes daily, but we'll do a mix from the traditional to the modern. Expect to dine of anchovies, octopus, bacalao, veal cheeks, foie gras, suckling pig, maybe we'll nibble on a pig ear or two? Thirsty? I'm great at pairing the perfect pour with the perfect plate, from local ciders to white wine (txakoli), young & aged tempranillo from La Rioja & beyond--maybe we'll dip into some vermouth too? There's always beer too! We're gonna have a blast, get a good walk in, have some laughs & of course EAT & DRINK VERY WELL. TOPA! G

I want to share the culinary culture of the Basque Country with you. On our outing you'll see the sites & learn the history, but it's all about the art of small plates! Eat on your feet like a local.
