We cooked a lot with supervisor chef and at the end of the class we all tasted the pintxos, the cod and the dessert. It was lot of food.
Great choice to get deep in Basque Gastronomy.

Excellent!!
In this 3-hour class, we learned to make pintxos, bacalao, and Basque cheese cake. Our instructor, made the class fun and showed us how we could make a variety of pintxos from these basic recipes. We tasted all the food paired with local Txakoli wine. It was absolutely fantastic.

This experience is a great way not just to remember this amazing city, but to be here again whenever you want. They show you how to prepare seven of the most traditional 'pintxos' of San Sebastian, in a simple, relaxed and easy way. So back at home, anytime you want, you can prepare some of them and turn your kitchen into a 'pintxo bar'... and feel a little bit closer to this incredible city.

Great cooking class in San Sebastian
Jan 2020
This was a top highlight of our visit to San Sebastian. Our instructor made the experience memorable. We prepared, under his guidance 4 different pintxos

with local ingredients. I specially loved the one with mushrooms. We also learnt to cook a dessalted cod dish with pil pil sauce created with olive oil and cod´s

gelatine, it was absolutely fantastic and shocking cooking such a thick sauce. For dessert we cooked a local cheese cake. This was all spent while tasting local

white wine Txakoli. We ate all the food and it was lot of food. A very enjoyable moment in our trip to San Sebastian.

Wonderful cooking class
We took this pintoxs cooking class and Loved it! It was simple and delicious. Marianna taught the class and she was wonderful. Her love of cooking made the class even more enjoyable. We made basic pintoxs, a couple larger main dishes and cheese cake for dessert. Each course was paired with local wine. I would recommend this class for people who love to cook or people who love good food.
