Welcome chalk board as guests arrive for the opening

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.

Conde Nast Traveller write up Pintxos in ‘A Life in Miniature’

  • Menéame0

conde nast travellerConde Nast’s February 2012 edition features a 5-page article entitled ‘A Life in Miniature’.   As author Paul Richardson mentions in his article, he met Jon by chance and came into our studio in the heart of the old town while he was visiting the city researching the article:

“And then in one of those moments of serendipity that are the reason one is still in love with travel, I bumped into Jon Warren.  Jon runs a small business called San Sebastian Food, offering visitors a privieged view of a city whose gastronomic excellences can sometimes be a little hard to get a handle on.”

The article goes on to explain more about what the company San Sebastian Food offers visitors, enphasizing the access to specialist knowledge and recommending our services:

“Jon’s tailormade tours of the finest pintxos bars not only cut out the possible disappointment factor inherent in going it alone, they also cut to the chase with the little-known, atmospheric down-home places, the upscale avant-garde places, and the speciality pintxos that only locals know about.”

Paul further talks about Jon and mentions some of the tips he was able to learn which improved his experience.

“From Jon I learned several things I didnt know before.”  Most importantly, that the really classy pintxos are often not to be found on the bar top, which acts as a kind of shop window showing punters what the kitchen can do, but on the menu chalked up behind the bar….”

“Armed with this sage advice, I set out with renewed enthusiasm,” says Paul following his meeting with Jon.

The article finishes by recommending San Sebastian Food in the information panel with full details of our pintxo tour, studio address and website details.

When Jon first arrived in San Sebastian, he read a book by Paul Richardson called ‘A Late Dinner’. It was an true inspiration to him when he arrived in Spain.  It is therefore particularly special and important to him that four years later, Paul has now written about him and San Sebastian Food!

“I thought I knew all about San Sebastian pintxos – but Jon and his team gave me a whole new insight into the best new bars, the right things to order in the right places, and a host of insider pintxo tips. I owe him one!” Paul Richardson.

San Sebastian Food becomes a Limited Company (Sociedad Limitada)

  • Menéame0

As of 1st January 2012, San Sebastian Food has become a Limited Company.  The move from sole-partnership reflects the continued success of the business and its growth plans for 2012.  ”San Sebastian Food has experienced considerable growth in 2011 and it now seems to be the right time to expand the structure of the company”, said Jon Warren, the company’s founder and managing director.

San Sebastian Food becomes a Sociedad Limitada (SL), the Spanish equivilent of a Limited Company (LTD).  The move reflects the companies continued growth in 2011 and their plans for expansion in 2012.

The business was founded in August 2009 and has steadily grown over the last 2 years.  In June 2010, the cstudio-frontompany moved to new premises in the heart of San Sebastian’s old town.  A prime site was found behind the famous Bretxa market, very close to the tourism office and nearby to the wide bouleveards of the city centre.

The team of staff at San Sebastian Food has also increased with the introduction of culinary co-ordinator Eli Susperregui.  Eli, who has lived in San Sebastian all her life, brings great experience to the team with her languages and knowledge of all things Basque.

The new company name is San Sebastian Food, Jon Warren SL.

The Financial Times writes about San Sebastian Food

  • Menéame0

financial-timesNick Lander, restaurant critic for the FInancial TImes, has published a story featuring San Sebastian Food’s Jon Warren.  Their meeting was coincidental, having met at the Gin & Tonic contest during San Sebastian’s annual gastornomy conference ‘Gastronomika’ in November.  To Read the full article, click here.

As the article’s author Nick Lander explains:

“I headed for the exit in need of tapas and a glass of sherry, only to find my route blocked by a figure with a notebook and pen in hand.  The man was Jon Warren who, after coming to San Sebastián to work as a waiter, discovered he so enjoyed giving wine and food recommendations to the city’s many visitors that he founded San Sebastián Food, using local knowledge to create culinary experiences.”

Lander continues:

“I decided to put Warren to the test as the conference was taking place in Gros, a part of the city I know less well. We struck gold within 200 metres without spending a cent. Bodega Donostiarra comprises a wine shop and adjacent bar but it is the unchanged interior of the former that immediately charmed me. Wine was stored everywhere on dark wooden shelves. Two men were behind an old counter chatting and putting the world to rights.”

Jon was able to guide Nick to some of the city’s lesser known bars and restaurants, avoiding the Michelin stars for more intimate experiences.  As well as many bars, Nick was particularly taken by Jon’s recommendation for Gandarias, a wonderful restaurant where Jon knows the staff very well.

“Its a favourite restaurant of mine, and when my parents are over, its the first place we go, commented Jon”.

Nick went on to mention in his article:

“Equally memorable was Warren’s recommendation for the following evening, dinner at Gandarias, located at the corner of two cobbled streets in the old town.”

Asked how he feels about the recent press overage, Founder Jon Warren said:

“I am absolutely delighted.  Nick was a delight to meet and it was a great pleasure to spend time together.  I’m looking forward to seeing him when he is next back in San Sebastián.  I hope he might come back with his wife Jancis Robinson so I can introduce her to our wine expert Jenny Siddall!”

  • Menéame0
San Fermin - Thursday 7th July

A family prepares for the day's fiesta in the traditional costume of red and white

It is almost July and many are looking forward to the summer fiestas this region is famous for, among which the San Fermin Festival in Pamplona. For those who are looking for something more authentic and intimate, food guide Jon Warren and acclaimed author Paddy Woodworth have put their shoulders under a unique 5-day-tour, the program of which is built around the special San Fermin ceremonies of the picturesque Pyrenean mountain village of Lesaka.

This unique experience will now be broken down into modules, which means that anyone interested will be able to take part, even those who cannot take 5 days off to submerge themselves in Basque culture and culinary enjoyment. Just choose one of the organised events on a day you are free to join us!

The San Fermin Fiesta of Lesaka begins on Wednesday 6th July with fireworks at 12.00. Those who join cultural expert Paddy Woodworth and local historian Rafael Eneterreaga that day to discover the beautifully preserved village’s hidden corners and secret narratives, will also have the chance to taste pintxos paired with wines in some of Lesaka’s infamous twenty-two bars.

The best day to fully experience the colourful festive ceremonies of the tiny village is no doubt Thursday 7th July, when the ezpata danza (sword dance) along the narrow stone banks of the Onin stream will take your breath away. You will immediately see why the village’s nickname, ‘Little Venice’, is a perfect one. This day also includes lunch in a local restaurant in between the rolling green Basque hills.

Friday 8th July then is ideal for those who long to travel deep into the ‘Pirineos Atlánticos’ and explore remote, beautiful and historic villages, to discover rich culture and a magnificent winery.  Further details are available by clicking here San Sebastian Food.

If you cannot make it on one of these wonderful trips into the heart of mountainous Basque Country but are keen to learn more about Basque history, culture and politics, don’t miss the engaging talk by Paddy Woodworth on Saturday evening 9th July, complete with wine tasting and pintxos. Woodworth has been writing about the Basque Country since 1978, for publications ranging from the Irish Times to the International Herald Tribune, and for broadcasters including the BBC, and has been asked to give presentations at prestigious universities such as Harvard.

All these four tours, except the last one, offer a whole day of ultimate mix between history and cuisine, and take you back to San Sebastian at the end of the tour. On Friday 8th July a 3-Michelin star dinner can be arranged for you as well at one of the top restaurants of the city, Arzak, now rated 8th in the world rankings.

These Basque Country discovery tours, organised with expert Paddy Woodworth, are a great opportunity for those who have been longing to experience something completely different, to learn about the history of a long independent and very strong community, and at the same time taste the flavours of world famous gastronomy!
