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’re back! As we slowly emerge from winter, we’ve been working hard to release our brand new 2011 brochure for this summer’s specially extended 5 day ‘Discover The Basque Country’ tour. After last year’s success, Paddy and Jon are already regularly chatting about this year’s tour which will accept a maximum of 15 guests and promises to be our best yet!
I’m very excited to announce that we now have the expert knowledge and premium guiding of a very exciting young talent in winemaker Jean-Paul Trijsburg.
“I love my job!”
“I love my job!” THIS is what I’d hear from friends when I lived and worked in London. It used to puzzle me. How could someone really love their job when they were based in an office and spent most of their time rushing around London or at their computer stressing out. The more ‘stressful’ someones job was, the more respect they seemed to earn from peers while chatting over a beer after work or at the weekend with friends. This did not make sense to me.
I’ve had a very busy few days so am relieved to find a few minutes to report to you all a snippet behind the scenes at San Sebastian Food from last weekend.
