Where to go first? It can be a make or break decision for any traveller who has just arrived in a new destination, as it will set the pace for the rest of your visit. Make sure you land in San Sebastián Style with a premium holiday experience that’s authentic, relaxed and delicious. Come straight to the studio at San Sebastián Food!
Our sexy little outpost is a calm and inviting spot for you to get your bearings and prepare for culinary immersion in San Sebastián. We’re right in the heart of the old town where we check the pulse of the city daily and are always happy to dish on where to go and what to eat.
Of course you don’t have to venture far as our studio features a new shop with a wide variety of local, regional and pan-Iberian snacks and gifts. Wines are poured by the glass all day long and if you catch us at just the right time you can join in on one of our gastro-tours or tasting seminars.
Sommelier Maitena Barrero stocks our cellar with weekly rotations of eight exotic pours of top wines. Plus there’s Sherry from Andalucia if you fancy something from further south. Want to take one with you? All of our wines are available for purchase as well.
One of our new highlights in the studio is the growing display of small-batch, artisanal gourmet products sourced by team member Kirstin Soldevilla. The poor girl spends countless hours sampling everything from biscuits and chocolate, to olive oils and spices, to preserves and pâtés.
Our shop’s selection is mostly Basque with heavy influence on neighboring out-of-the-way villages, though we’ve been known to dip further afoot to bring in some treats from Galicia, Andalusia and La Mancha as well. One of Kirsten’s top pics right now is an exclusive selection of sundries from La Cuna in the village of Tolosa, including Porcini with White Truffle Pâté and Confit of Red Peppers. You won’t find these anywhere else in town.
Additionally we’re one of the only San Sebastián purveyors to stock Espelette- the mysterious dried pepper from the French Basque countryside. A secret weapon amongst top chefs in Paris, take a jar home to liven up your next dinner party! We also carry exotic salts from local producer Sal de Añano, which are so outstanding you’ll never reach for that box of Maldon again!
Whether you want to take something home with you, prepare for a deluxe picnic on the beach, grab a bottle for dinner or just delve right into a taste of the good life that is San Sebastián, our studio has everything you need.
So drop in, enjoy a glass and get to know the real San Sebastián! We’re here to make sure your first stop is the right one and set the pace for your luxurious holiday with San Sebastián Food.
