San Sebastián: Pintxos of the Old Town Cooking Class
The tiny, delectable bites that line the bar tops of San Sebastian are its trademark—pintxos. Mimo was founded in San Sebastián, and a version of this class is our most popular cooking class of all time.
Finding (and eating) the best Basque small bites, or pintxos, in San Sebastián is a local sport, and in this class, home cooks learn how to replicate these sophisticated snacks at home. Let us guide you on a cooking journey through the recipes of the most famous streets and bars of San Sebastián’s Old Town, and learn how to replicate its most talked-about pintxos, whether it’s the prawn skewer at Goiz Argi or the slow cooked beef cheek at Borda Berri.
Each class includes:
instruction with expert chef aperitif & digestif hands-on preparation of pintxos with top-quality produce recipes gourmet lunch with wines
Each Pintxo Cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings. You will gather around our communal dining table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.
