What you'll do

Create your own Basque pintxos and impress friends and family with these popular, flavourful Basque-style snacks. You'll get to devour lots of perfect pintxos throughout the evening, so our top advice is to arrive hungry.

This is Basque tapas at its finest - delicate towers of pintxos, mixing incredible flavours and often balanced on bread, all with the classic pintxos toothpick holding them together. In this cooking evening you’ll discover the basics of Basque cuisine and why it’s so loved in Spain. The recipes you make will depend on the seasonal, local produce available and could include:

  • Quail egg, piccino pepper and bacon
  • Manchego, roasted tomato and romesco sauce
  • Spanish omelette and chorizo
  • Escalivada with local goats cheese

Bring your own wine or beer to enjoy as you build your pintxos, then sit back and savour your handiwork. For some of this experience your chef host will demo the cooking, but you’ll get to try every dish made at the end. You’ll finish with the skills to recreate these impressive Basque treats for friends and family at home, and the recipes for everything you’ve made.

Your host


Monica is the founder of Cooking It. She was born in Barcelona but has called Bristol home for almost 30 years. Monica grew up around food and could regularly be found in the kitchen of her grandparents’ restaurant, soaking up all the flavours and recipes - so much so she still loves making the tapas recipes she learnt as a child. She returns to Barcelona often to carry on discovering new recipes in her family’s restaurants and patisseries. When Monica isn’t sharing her cooking know-how, you’ll find her enjoying wine with friends and feeding people - often her four daughters and their friends.
