Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

An explosion of wonderful flavors awaits on this four-hour gourmet tour that introduces you to a rising star in the international culinary world.

A short motorcoach ride brings you to the famed Zortziko, Bilbao's finest Michelin-starred restaurant, founded in 1989 by legendary chef Daniel Garcia. Renowned for his contemporary haute cuisine and ever-evolving seasonal menu, Garcia creates food that is truly innovative, and his eclectic mix of locally sourced ingredients is heralded for its originality and flavors.

Upon arrival at the restaurant, step inside this classically elegant building, declared a historic monument, and view the formal 1920s-style private dining areas. Proceed into a separate venue built expressly for culinary classes that showcases an ultra modern kitchen and demonstration area.

Say hello to Chef Garcia, arguable one of the top chefs in Spain. Trained by Spanish masters, Garcia has developed his own eclectic culinary techniques and preparations rooted in his desire to reinterpret the culinary traditions of his homeland. His flagship restaurant, Zortziko has earned a "Michelin Star," the hallmark of quality in fine dining around the world.

Learning from one of the most famed talents in Basque cuisine is an amazing and unforgettable experience. Sharpen and refine your culinary skills, learn little-known secrets of haute cuisine and taste the freshest local delicacies. During your master class, you'll sample a minimum of four recipes accompanied by a Txakoli wine tasting so you can learn more about this crisp, lightly sparkling white wine produced in Basque Country.

After enjoying this fantastic meal, bid farewell to the extraordinary Chef Garcia and "bask" in this unique experience with your fellow foodies on the ride back to port.
