Lovely Place

San Sebastian has been awared as the Bst Gastronomic Destiny in The World. We already knew this, just in the City we have three 3*** STAR MICHELIN, and this is just the begining.

Why we are different

“We are often asked to define “Food Tourism”. We have seen many definitions from around the world, but for us, the definition is as simple as this, “The pursuit and enjoyment of unique and memorable food and drink experiences, both far and near. “We need to clarify “far and near”. In addition to traveling across country or the world to eat or drink, we can also be food travelers in our own regions, cities and neighborhoods.”

Becuse cooking is my pasion, this always allows me to meet marvelous people from all the world with the food as common thread

tradition + innovation

Our Region is coastal, frontier community and also of mountain, therefore its diversity with regard to the ingredients is much higher and that has allowed to consolidate wonderful culinary traditions. If to these customs we add the arrival of the new Basque kitchen in the 70s, based on the innovation and creativity, we will find a product only and worthy of recognition.

“This excellent cooking class is conveniently located in Hotel Casa Nicolasa in the centre of San Sebastian. Chef Ben served a delicious five course dinner while giving a clear demonstration and explanation of how the food was prepared. Guests could choose to assist in the cooking or simply to sit back and enjoy. Chef Ben was very friendly and willing to answer all our questions. In all, it was a delightful evening and we recommend this experience to any one.”
