Great news! It is always rather scary to put a new project out in the ether and wait for the response so we are very excited to report our first bookings this week for Discover The Basque Country – 5th – 8th July. Both Paddy and I have been putting in the hours and our marketing and PR skills have been stretched to the very limit!
Unfortunately, Paddy’s plans to be in Chicago were dashed due to the Icelandic volcano but postponement on his latest work meant he had some extra time to spend on marketing our tour! With places now down to just 12 remaining, we’re both keen to fill the places as quickly as possible.
We are hoping for press coverage in the UK in the coming weeks so will keep you in touch with all the latest developments.
I’m just going to jump on my bicycle and visit restaurant Bokado to discuss arrangements with them for our gourmet dinner on the final night of the tour (Wednesday 7th July). This is a quick visit to discuss the numbers and finalise pricing and I will be returning again to chat about the menu nearer the time. I highly recommend both the restaurant and bar for visitors, it makes a great stop off for a café cortado (espresso cut with hot milk) when walking the Paseo Nuevo around Monte Urgull.
We have reserved for our guests the beautiful private dining room with an open private terrace overlooking the bay above the main restaurant. It will make a spectacular culinary end to the tour!
One of the great things about a blog is that you get to keep a record of what you get up to. So, I’ll be posting up a little snippet from behind the scenes at San Sebastian Food from last weekend very soon!
