Gastronomy with the five senses

Gastronomic plans 5 minutes from Donostia – San Sebastian

In the towns of Errenteria, Oiartzun, Lezo et Pasaia, just 5 minutes from Donostia - San Sebastian, you will not only taste, you can also experience the Basque gastronomy smearing your hands with the freshest ingredients of our land and sea, all this thanks to the gastronomy experiences that can be lived in this region.

Esperientzia gastro

To do this, here are five magnificent plans that you can enjoy with the five senses:

 




1.- Traditional cooking workshop


Cooking workshop in the Ziaboga Restaurant in Pasai Donibane, which is located on the shore of the sea and in the heart of the old town.

The workshop consists of a presentation of the chef Alex Barcenilla, who, accompanied by coffee, explains what the workshop will consist of and which typical dishes will be prepared: kokotxas, cod pil-pil, squids, etc.

Then a selection of products is made where you learn to choose the best pieces. If the sea has allowed to fish, Juanito Makazaga, a veteran squid-fisher, will show his captures of the day and will tell his peculiarities.

Once the menu is chosen, it is prepared according to the guidelines of the chef in order to go to the dining room and enjoy what you have cooked yourself.

2.- Secrets of the chocolate


Casa Aramendia gives us the opportunity to know profoundly this exceptional product, and of course, to enjoy its shapes, sounds, textures, aromas and flavors.

We will enter the Casa Aramendia workshop and learn the origins and the historical role of the chocolate in this region. We will learn to distinguish the different varieties in a small tasting and they will show us the evolution and the manufacturing process from the cultivation to the palate. And then, all hands on deck: the adults and the little ones, we will prepare together some delicious truffles and chocolate lollipops that we will be able to taste as soon as they are ready.

Undoubtedly, an unforgettable experience for all the senses, and as the icing on the cake, the visit to the facilities of this small chocolatier temple and to its bakery. All this dressed with the attire of a real chocolatier master that we can immortalize in a photo available for download on their website.
