Description

Pintxo Cooking Class : The Essential Pintxo

Small bites pack a powerful punch when it comes to the pintxo, Basque Country's most famous culinary export.

** One of our most popular experiences **

At its most basic, a pintxo is a small bite—but with a world of knowledge, tricks and tips behind its preparation.  From the simple gilda, the city’s emblematic pintxo, to the elaborate creations that inspired by avant-garde cuisine, the world of pintxos is demystified and made easy and fun in our cooking school.   Learn the basics and beyond in The Essential Pintxo class.

  • bilingual instruction with the local chef
  • aperitif & digestif
  • hands-on preparation of pintxos with top-quality produce
  • recipes
  • gourmet lunch with wines
  • souvenir


Each Pintxo Cooking class ends with a delicious lunch and carefully chosen wine pairings.  You will gather around our rustic wooden table to enjoy what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired knowledge.
