Ultimate Pintxo Workshop and Market Tour

From the hand of a local chef you’ll get to know all the phases, locations and secrets of Basque cuisine. What for? To enter the Olympus of Basque pintxos and learn how to make these miniature masterpieces, from the simplest to the most elaborate. Welcome to the most “gastro” San Sebastián!

To eat well, you have to buy well. What better place that at a traditional market (Est. 1870), where the main restaurants in San Sebastián buy local products? Our guide will take you through some thirty stalls of fresh fish, meat and produce, and will explain Basque cuisine top to bottom. A hint at its essence: tradition, respect for the product (no ketchup on steak…), and a standard of quality and closeness.

Masters of the Gastroverse

Time to light the stove. We’ll take you to our modern private kitchen so you can prepare your own pintxos. You’ll start with the simplest and most traditional, then move on to more complex recipes, local specialties and some Basque haute cuisine. You bring the interest and the passion, Ikusnahi brings the laughs and good vibes. After preparation comes the most complicated and difficult part of the process – eating! With a selection of local wines. Be brave, and good luck! ;)


Our workshop is a global experience that goes beyond cooking and eating. We’ll dive deeply into the history of Basque culture and its passionate relationship with food. Where does this love come from? Why do Basques like to eat so much? Why do they drink so much? What secrets does “Basque cuisine” hide? How did pintxos come to be, and why have they become a worldwide phenomenon? We’ll answer these questions and any others you might have - or at least, we’ll try!
