One of the world’s most recognized culinary conferences is just around the corner: San Sebastián Gastronomika. We’ll have coverage here on EITB, but until then, there are a few things you should know!
*This year, France is the focus of the conference. This means there will be French chefs imparting their classic (and not-so-classic) wisdom to the masses.
* This year, Gastronomika is celebrated in the good weather half of fall: October 7-10.
* At the last minute, some great sections have been added: “The method of London Nº 1”, a theater piece by Carlos Moreno, Juan Echanove, Loquillo and ChristianEscribà; “Cocinando con” and more.
*A tasting of cachaças by Rodrigo Oliveira (restaurante Mocotó, Sao Paulo, Brasil)
*A tasting of foie gras Rougié and Txakoli from Getaria
*an event that promises to be interesting: a pairing of two cheeses, Idiazabal y Ossau Iraty, tasting included.
*the ending of the conference will be celebrated by a cake-for-all surprise, an homage created by Christian Escribà and Patricia Schmidt.
