Have you heard about the “Sisters and the City” of Donostia?

I caught up with Idoia and Su at San Sebastián Food in the luxury collection Hotel Maria Cristina to hear some of their story.

San Sebastián’s nearly two hundred thousand inhabitants living by the beautiful La Concha beach might be biased for thinking of their flourishing culinary city as the food capital of the world.  But the owners of San Sebastián Food could not agree more, and they are cooking up trips and courses to take the outsider inside the Basque gastronomic galley.

Stepping into Donostia’s “Zapore Jai“ fine food store, Sylvain met me with a smile and a warm handshake, characteristic of his way in the shop.  I had seen the store’s name on products in San Sebastián Food’s shop, and Jon Warren had mentioned that I should drop in to the store to meet husband and wife co-owners, Sylvain and Aurkene.  They offer the world’s best Iberian cured ham (jamón serrano), sausages and cheeses to experienced and novice palates alike, transporting them to the arid terrain of acorn trees and wild-roaming black-footed pigs.

Dropping in to San Sebastián Food’s wine tasting space today I met with winemaker Andrew Halliwell.  Walking in, the long table caught my eye—a glass-topped Basque fishing boat—and I knew I was in an artistic culinary explorers’ scene.  Andrew lucidly guided me through the origins and the processing of a few bottles before I could find out more about the man himself.  When he handed me his own “Viña Pomal” from Bodegas Bilbainas, I knew I had to hear more about the skill behind such a piece of liquid art.
