Spent an entertaining and delicious day cooking with the chef from the gastronomic society. Not only interesting in cooking techniques but also in learning the history of these clubs. Wonderful lunch of basque dishes with lovely wines. We did a private event for a group of 4 - recommend highly!

My experience in San Sebastian and Bilbao areas was fabulous. The Mediterranean influence was all around us. I loved the palm trees, floral and beauty of this area. The food was delicious as well!

I can't mark anything down. I would... More
