San Sebastian Pintxos Cooking Class


What is this phenomenon called Pintxos? 

You’ve heard all about enjoying Tapas, eating the Spanish way.  Well Pintxo (or Pincho) is what is eaten in the Basque area in northern Spain.   The word means ‘spike’ or ‘thorn’ and so refers to small bite size dishes that are commonly spiked with a skewer or toothpick, often presented on a slice of bread.   

This is where tradition meets innovation on a backdrop of a fiercely proud and resilient culture.  Appearance, aroma, taste and texture will ensure all your senses are engaged! Mandatory!!

 Pintxos is the plural, and these delights are meant to be eaten and enjoyed with friends and acquaintances, both old and new.  
You’ll get to experience a wide variety of different flavours since each mouthful is a new sensation.

Enjoying Pintxos is a totally different vibe to a sit down three course meal.  Pintxos are meant to be enjoyed in the company of others.  
Sitting or standing at a bar and having a drink and pintxos with friends is the ultimate Basque experience.   
Come along to the Spice Bazaar Cooking School and learn the art of creating Pintxos.
You’ll then enjoy eating them with your new friends, along with a couple of glasses of matched wine.
