San Sebastian Gourmet
Three days culinary escape to San Sebastian
San Sabastian is one of the jewels of Spain. A Taste of Spain provided us with insights and opportunities we would never have found on our own. We loved it!
I have used A Taste of Spain’s services during my stay in San Sebastian. I would love to recommend them to anyone who is looking to have a special culinary tour in Spain… 5 star quality service all over! Read about this experience on my blog.
We spent 3 nights in San Sebastian on our 10-day culinary adventure with A Taste of Spain and it was wonderful… It was a great adventure! Photo blog
The Basque Kitchen experience was wonderful! We all enjoyed the tapas tour. The cooking lesson was fun, and we loved the lunch we prepared. Also, the hotel and its location were perfect.

Start the day with a guided visit to La Brecha food market, the colorful vegetables from the Caseríos (Basque farmhouses) and the fresh seafood from the nearby fishing villages will definitely open your appetite!
Experience a culinary tradition unique to the Basque Country: you’ll be welcome to cook at a members-only Gastronomic Society, where locals gather. You will learn about these local institutions while preparing traditional Basque recipes with the help of our personable teacher, with long experience in professional kitchens of London and New York.
Once the cooking is done, sit down and enjoy the dishes prepared as lunch with some fine Spanish wine.
Free evening to explore the town on your own and, if you wish, dine at one of San Sebastian’s extraordinary restaurants – we’d assist with suggestions and bookings.
