San Sebastian Food is a pioneering food company with departments devoted to cooking classes, gourmet retail, and culinary tourism. We are a group of twenty food and wine professionals, comprised of locals, experts and passionate foodies with an expansive knowledge base. Our classes, experiences, and retail offerings are authentic glimpses into the often secret local world of food, wine and culture.

Pintxos, Rioja wine, seafood, cider, Idiazabal cheese….the tiny Basque region of Spain has more than its share of delicious treasures. Our location in San Sebastian specializes in sharing the culinary secrets of this beautiful landscape with our clients. We lead culinary tours throughout the Basque Country in northern Spain and southern France. From cooking classes and jamon carvings, to visiting wineries and local markets, to simply hitting the old town for a fun night of pintxo bar hopping, our experiences are the epitome of easy luxury, tailored to your desires.

San Sebastian is the culinary capital of the world, with more Michelin stars per capita than anywhere else on the planet, a farmer’s market six days a week and hundreds of bustling pintxo bars. Locals plan their day around where to eat and what to drink, and we aim to give you a taste of authentic San Sebastian, with an added dose of expertise.

We arrived in San Sebastian eager to sample the famous Pintxos. We found Calle Cabelton in the Old Town, but where do you begin with so many of them? The best decision we made was reserving a pintxos tour with San Sebastian Food. Our guide, Lourdes, took us to her favorite ones. What a treat! From Guindilla peppers, to oxtail,... More

We had a fantastic guide who spoke fluent english and she was able to give us lots of history about the San Sebastian old town history. The pinches tour was excellent, the timings were perfect as was the food and we had a lot of fun. Highly recommend you do this tour.
