San Sebastian Food with Jonathan McCallum

Live Stream featuring San Sebastián Food in Donostia, Basque Country

Today’s live stream featured San Sebastián Food who help their guests “Capture the memories of San Sebastián-Donostia, the briny taste of the Cantabrian Sea, and the joy of tiny bites of authentic Basque cuisine.”


King Tides & Basque Octopus

I strolled across the beach and walked the glowing sand past where the sea usually lies, a rare privilege bestowed by the king low tide. Three metre tidal changes are not uncommon here in the Basque Country, and with the king tides the octopus are more accessible.  Having learned some tricks from local octopus fisherman, I searched around where the sand meets the rocks and was rewarded under the first rock I checked. (I’d just like to mention that catching these very strong and intelligent creatures requires a fishing licence and the bag limit is 2 per licensed fishermen per day with size restrictions…Regulations are important!)

Getaria to Goierri

Yesterday, Fernando of Embajada de la Huerta gathered together a few of us from Gipuzkoa and we joined others from Bilbao & Gasteiz as a group of gastronomy, culture and Basque Country enthusiasts known here as “Igers” (see their photos on Instagram below).

A Full & Filling Day Touring Donostia

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.
