It is hardly surprizing that “Pintxo Hunting” and the “Pintxo Cooking Class at the Gastronomic Society” are two of the most popular tours offered at San Sebastián Food. Here is one day captured through the lens in Donostia with San Sebastián Food guide Eli Susperregui & friends.

My eyes were delighted by the sights of pastries and confections and my mouth was in sweet ecstasy from the chocolates and turrones of Pariès – Gourmandises Basques.  You can see the tempting sweets below, and the range of chocolates was from rich and dark to sweet and creamy.

Carlos Arribas was the master ice cream artisan who taught my friend Fernando Alberdi the art of creamy deliciousness.  Using the techniques of gelato maestros, Alberdi’s small but inviting shop in Getaria’s main street offers an enticing list of flavours, including Ferrero Rocher, Pink Panther, and dulce de leche.  A photo of their mouth-watering mango flavour above.

The locally hand-picked produce at San Sebastián Food is amazing. Dropping into the store the other day I couldn’t help but snap this picture of “Caviaroli”.  This delicious product adds a splash of flavor to breads, fish and meats, a few drops of Caviaroli make an elaborately decorated plate. I just learned that it also can be used in soups and hot creams, keeping its shape for a gourmet touch.

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.
