Basque Cooking Class : San Sebastián, Bilbao & Beyond
The sea and the mountains surrounding the Basque capitals of Bilbao and San Sebastián are rife with ancient traditions and the freshest of ingredients. Mimo was founded in San Sebastián, and in this class, our chefs bring you the best of this culinarily rich region.
In this culinary journey, you will learn to prepare the famous Basque dishes from both the coastal fishing villages and the mountainous interior of the provinces of Gipuzkoa and Bizkaia. Bring the history and traditions of Basque Country to life in this hands-on cooking class. If you want to take away a primer on the cuisine of the Basque culture, this is the class for you.

Love of food is a family affiar for Sarah, whose father was a chef that traveled extensively, exposing her to the culinary world during her childhood in South Africa. After studying psychology and education, Sarah traveled to South Korea to teach English for a year. Her adventures here were a formative experience – she submerged herself into life in Cheongiu, learning the language and indulging her passion for food, trying everything and anything – including a memorable experience with sannakji, live baby octopus.
Sarah moved to London three years ago, working as a waitress at Albion in Shoreditch. She quickly moved through the ranks and became part of the management team, before joining Mimo London.
