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.”
Over the previous week, under drizzle and burst of sunshine, I’ve been exploring the Basque Country: Zumaia, Getaria, Donostia-San Sebastian & beyond (scroll down to see the photos).

Today I visited Minimil’s flagship clothing shop in Donostia and met the creative team of extraordinary Basque people. Here is my interview in Spanish and English with Maria.

At San Sebastián Food someone is always popping open a fresh bottle in the Gourmet Shop. If you’re staying in San Sebastián-Donostia be sure to drop in and meet the friendly staff and check out the wines on offer such as one from “Billecart-Salmon” from Mareuil-sur-Ay, France. The family-owned Champagne house’s Brut Reserve is a refreshing, balanced and elegantly presented wine that first sparkled into glasses in 1818.
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.
