What you'll do
Hola, If you are a foodie and want to discover why Bilbao has become the gastronomical reference of Northern Spain you must join me. I have the highest quality food & drinks route you could possibly imagine! I´m a food passionate, I have studied Basque cuisine and I know every single spot In Bilbao to taste the best Basque tapas, pintxos and miniature cuisine. My speciality is "Wine Pairings" so get ready to taste Basque ciders and all the different wines grown in Northern Spain. I will explain to you the roots of each dish and drink you try, its ingredients and how you could recreate it at home. You will learn a lot of interesting stories about Basque Country and I will show you the "essential local rules" to order the best food when you are on your own. You will experience it like Basque people: walking around town, sitting in terraces for a drink and hopping from bar to bar pairing local food with drinks.
Hola, I´m Irene, a little world explorer born in Northern Spain, my hometown and favourite part of this world. I love eating and drinking wine so I decided to study Basque cuisine and everything about wine and spirits - I have a level 2 in The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). This is why if you join any of my experiences (cooking courses & food tours) you would be able to learn everything about our local food traditions as well as the main characteristics of our wines and beverages. I live in a caserio (the traditional houses of Basque Country where farmers lived and make their own cider) with my two doggies following a healthy and organic life.

Where you'll be
Bilbao is a city with a rich history and has focused on de-industrialisation since the 90's resulting in a very walkable and enjoyable city focused on service. This tour has an itinerary that will take you to the most authentic bars to taste high quality Basque food. We will stop in bars and cafes whilst I give a potted history of the culture and customs of the city.
