Unforgettable Basque culinary experience from beginning to end!
, Sep 2019
If you love great food and wine, beautiful scenery and architecture, history and meeting amazing, talented people, then this is the dream travel experience for you! It was inspiring to spend time with Irene and David at their Basque hillside paradise just 30 minutes outside of Barcelona. The tour of the magical seaside village of Castro-Urdiales, on the Camino de Santiago, to learning how to cook the most delicious pintxos of our trip, to tasting local wines and learning how to appreciate its unique qualities, this boutique gastronomic experience could not have been any better! Irene & David were kind, generous and infectiously passionate about food and wine. They welcomed us into their amazing home as if we were family. Honestly, we were ready to move in by evening’s end!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this review for us. I am very happy to hear that you enjoy your cooking experience with us during your time in Bilbao and hopefully you will be cooking those pintxos soon back at home. Enjoy the rest of your trip and hopefully we will be welcoming you soon again.. Irene
Fantastic Cooking Experience in Spain!

Irene, the cooking instructor is a gem! She grew up in Bilbao, gave us a short tour then went to her villa for the hands on cooking class. She paired each pintxos with wine. Irene makes you feel like family. Wonderful way to spend the afternoon! Highly recommend this class.
