Last night, our studio in San Sebastian’s old town was officially launched with a special event attended by over 80 professionals in the gastronomy and tourism sector.  From government officials to hotel owners and the tourism office, the event was great fun and of course featured excellent local food and wine from the region.

We are delighted to report that Monday 16th April has marked the inauguration of our studio in San Sebastian’s old town on Calle Aldamar, No 30.

We received overwhelming support from invited guests and were delighted that over 80 people attended the event including Basque Government official Javier López.  Other guests included many of San Sebastian’s hotel owners and receptionists from hotels such as the Maria Cristina, Astoria7, Villa Soro, Hotel Codina, Hotel Niza and Hotel Parma.

STUDIO OFFERS ONE-STOP-SHOP FOR CULINARY & WINE TOURISTS

Jon Warren, San Sebastian Food founder gave a short presentation on the studio which he believes can be the number 1 place to visit for anybody interested in gastronomy and wine while visiting San Sebastian.

Standing on a chair, due to the huge number of guests who attended, Jon spoke in Spanish explaining his vision for the studio.

“I have no doubt that San Sebastian is one of the greatest places in the world to enjoy authentic gastronomy.  But, finding it is not always easy.  Our goal for San Sebastian Food is to offer guests access to these culinary experiences”, he passionately explained.

Jon also used the opportunity to thank all the partners who collaborate with his business followed by a toast to a successful and continued collaboration together in the future.

TOURISM OFFICE SHOWS ITS SUPPORT

It was fantastic to see the full team from San Sebastian’s tourism office attend the event, led by Gorka Oiartzabal, departmental head of customer service.   In addition, Kristina from the Central de Reservas of the tourism office also attended with her colleague Noelia.  This offered a great chance to get to know them personally and to discuss opportunities for the future.

TASTING EXPERIENCES HAVE STARTED

The studio not only offers a meeting point for those interested in gastronomy but also a place where people can enjoy a range of tasting experiences which has already begun with a daily wine tasting at 4pm.  Further innovative experiences will be launched over the coming weeks.  For more information, please visit our website www.sansebastianfood.com.
