Basque Cooking Class & Gourmet Experience


-We work with a notable Basque chef in Bilbao that specializes in gourmet pintxos (Basque version of a tapa), typical Basque dishes and deserts. Basque gastronomy is some of the absolute best in Spain, and the Basque Country is considered one of the top gastronomic destinations in the world!

-This experience offers the guest a private one-on-one experience. The class includes a hands-on preparation of pintxos and main courses using top-quality ingredients sourced from the local markets.

-In this course you will learn to prepare the famous Basque dishes from both the coastal fishing villages and the mountainous interior of the Basque region. You will learn the history and traditions of Basque cooking in this in-depth culinary experience.

-You will prepare 4 pintxos, a main dish typical to the region, and a desert. We exclusively cook with fresh local vegetables, fish, meats and cheese sourced from the local markets.

-All the produce, fish and meat is completely organic, and this is one of the many reasons why the food here is so amazing! A Basque gourmet lunch follows the cooking session accompanied with local wine. Tasting your delicious dishes is always a highlight of this Basque cooking class!

-This is a one of kind Basque experience that is sure to be the highlight of your holiday in the Basque Country!
